The Cabell’s review board will consider Predatory Report appeals with a frequency of one appeal request per year, per journal. Publications classified as predatory, those with unacceptable practices, are encouraged to amend their procedures to comply with accepted industry standards.
Requests for appeals must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Journals wishing to appeal inclusion in Cabells Predatory Reports must demonstrate an honest revision of their behaviors with proof of corrective and preventative actions for each Predatory Report violation.
Upon review, the criteria will be applied with strict scrutiny and the board will conduct a complete examination of the appellant. To facilitate the appeals process, the appellant must comply with all requests for additional information regarding policies, procedures, and the publication’s peer review process.
Following this appeal process, a journal found to no longer qualify for Cabells Predatory Reports will be removed. Please note that removal from Cabells Predatory Reports does, by no means, qualify a journal for Cabells Journalytics. Journals wishing to be included in Cabells Journalytics must follow the proper application procedures and are subject to additional review to confirm qualification.
