This is a problem which manifests itself in every discipline and it preys on basic human needs for recognition. The current publishing world of academia itself is to blame partially.

Because in each field of science scientists and researchers usually have a short list of peer-reviewed journals and conferences in their mental narrow focus, only librarians typically have a (often not much) better overview of available reputable journals and conferences in respective fields.

It is high time for a global registry of scientific publishers and their respective journals and a form of rating and grading them.

I want to share an article from the New York Times on so called
pseudo-scientific journals and conferences and would like to hear opinions
from other members of the community.
