Today, scientific societies and scholarly communities are more unequivocally determined to fight “peer review fraud” than ever. Predatory publishers publish any article for a fee, but do not adhere to the high standards of typical peer-reviewed scholarly publications. We believe that fraudulent scientific publication processes, despite of all their ramifications, can have positive consequences—namely, bringing researchers and academic institutions together to remove the highly prolific “false data tumor” from the body of knowledge and science.

As a robust and holistic solution, we strongly believe that researchers and their employers should be equally educated on how to win the war against organized predatory publishing. We propose the following bilateral intervention that includes both employers and employees of academic institutions.
