Developing new technologies is making computers more easily accessible and publishing electronically is now an option, while open access is viewed by many as the solution to the 1980s scientific journals accessibility crisis. Open access is defined as the electronic distribution of reviewed scientific works and the enabling of their free and unrestricted use by any interested parties. The possibilities offered by the internet, the pressure on scientists to get ahead and commercial publishers’ desire for profit have led to the appearance of publishers of dubious quality, that is to say predatory publishers who use the flaws and shortcomings of open access and thereby harm scientific communication and the academic community.
