Daniel Levitin is Misinformed About Peer Review and Open Access Journals
Marcus Banks

Does Marcus have a case of Levitinitis? After a cogent critique of the broad brush Levitin uses to frame open access, Marcus takes a swipe at Beall, who “devolved into an ideologically motivated critic of all of open access publishing.” Kind of a broad brush swipe which I don’t think represents the service Beall provides. He doesn’t debate philosophy…he nails crooks to the cross. And publishes a name list of the epidemic of fakery that, unfortunately, is giving open access a bad name. Yea, I think that one time he wagged a finger at PLoS One sloppy peer review. That is hardly a critic of all things open access.
