Around the Web: A quick list of readings on “predatory” open access journals

As a kind of quick follow up to my long ago post on Some perspective on “predatory” open access journals (presentation version, more or less, here and very short video version here) and in partial response to the recent What I learned from predatory publishers, I thought I would gather a bunch of worthwhile items here today.

Want to prepare yourself to counter panic around predatory open access journals? Here’s some great places to start.

I’m sure I’ve missed a bunch of important articles. Please let me know in the comments!
