“Beware the author mills”

This recent blog post by Paul V. Smith on the topic of disreputable publishers may be of interest to some. Paul, whose PhD thesis was recently solicited by a publishing house of controversial repute, reminds us that predatory publishers:

aim at a high output of material, with unfavourable conditions and low publishing standards, aiming at current students or young scholars who are desperate to be published.

As always, caveat scriptor.
