I have not paid attention to predatory open access journals because 
there is a lot of junk science on-line.  Of more concern are what might 
be termed, "predatory conferences." I often receive invites to present 
or chair meeting on suspicious subjects or subjects I know nothing 
about. They want an application fee.
Having discussed this with some Faculty here at USF I learned that many 
of these meeting actually do not exist. They take your money and run. 
Beware. Gene
