Are Journal of Business and Economics, USA, and Academic Star publishing company predatory?



 According to our database Cabell's Directories, this publisher is on the Blacklist.

When it comes to the Journal Blacklist for Cabell's Directories, specialists analyze over sixty behavioral indicators to keep the community aware of the growing threats and to keep academia protected from exploitative operations. From what I found, it appears that not only is the Journal of Business and Education on the Blacklist, but eight other publications by the Academic Star Publishing Company are as well. While JBE has six violations, the others have no more than six and no less than five. If you would like to see this information for yourself, please refer to the following instructions:
