Predatory journal research in evidence synthesis

Posted on 14 April 2021

The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) Predatory Publishing Practices Methods Group are seeking to understand how those who synthesize evidence consider studies published in predatory journals during the evidence synthesis process, or even whether they were considered at all.

The survey below contains questions related to your experiences and thoughts about predatory journals in relation to the evidence synthesis process. If you wish to participate in this survey, please click on the link below.

We also encourage you to  forward on this invitation to other individuals or groups who have been involved in evidence synthesis that may have something to share regarding their experiences of predatory journals.

For questions or feedback please contact Tim Barker ( or Zac Munn (
