Cabells - a Database of Predatory Journals

Logo of Cabells

Cabells is a database which lists predatory journals, not recommended as publication channels. The service is in test use in University of Helsinki until the end of 2023. UH has a license to a list of predatory journals (predatory reports). From the search result you can see a list of suspicious features of the journal (violations) which are the reasons why the journal is added to the database. Note that Cabells has no relation to a website Predatoryreports.org. There is no guarantee that the information there is reliable.
