I looked at the site above, and on the allegations, he makes against Beall Jeffrey I would like to clarify the following
1-It seems that the site is not official, and those who are responsible for it are unknown and they call themselves Friends of Open Access or a group of librarians did not say, publishers or university professors, they did not mention any name or institution sponsoring the site.
2-I read most of their claims about Beall Jaffrey’s criteria, and it is incorrect. The criteria of Beall Jeffrey consist of about 40 items, and all of them are logical. And through it, the predatory journal is published quickly, without evaluation, and without classifying the article in international databases.
