Abstract

A group of writers in a paper published in the prestigious science journal Nature has voiced grave concern at the explosive proliferation of predatory publishing; the number of journals in the field has shot up to over 10,000 in few years. This number covers natural sciences but social studies like economics are also covered. Publications in Islamic economics finance especially, shows marked proclivity to attract the affliction. This note explores the causes of contagion, its consequences and possible remedies to curb the malady.
