Worse, it’s rather difficult to find the details of that policy unless one is a subscriber to the service — I finally had to ask where it was, at which point I was directed to the question “How do I get a specific journal removed from the Blacklist?” on Cabell’s publicly-facing FAQs page.

Thank you for making it. To end this discussion — I’m happy this product exists, because otherwise, post-Beall, no such list seems to have arisen. I’m not sure I’ve understood your comment 100%, but I can tell you that the criteria for inclusion in the Blacklist have already been revealed. It is worth persuing with the direct or indirect baking of legitmate consortium of NOT FAKE and NOT PREDATORY Journals and their Publishing Houses. The inclusion criteria are now categorized in tiers, from “Severe” (“the journal gives a fake ISSN,” “editors do not actually exist or are deceased,” etc.) My intention was to spin-out why I wouldn’t want to see a publisher-pays APC-like model here and also obliquely raise the prospect that there might be other funding models that would make free access to the data possible – if libraries were willing to do something like subscribe-to-open (and if Cabells was willing to pursue that model – I can imagine reasons that they might not).
