- Scholarly Open Access: Jeffrey Beall's page collecting lists of predatory open access publishers and standalone journals. This was generally considered the standard resource until Jeffrey took down the website (probably due to legal threats or action). A mirror, with some attempt to update after the closing of the site, can be found at beallslist.weebly.com.
- Stop Predatory Journals: A full attempt to replace Beall's site, with regular (?) updates.
- Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association: Gold OA advocacy organization and trade association.
- Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE): An organization promulgating best practice standards in publication ethics.
- Directory of Open Access Journals
- GVSU Open Access Journal Quality Indicators: A list of criteria for quality in open access journals. The positive indicators are relatively easy to meet, even for journals generally considered junk/predatory, making this a conservative source.
