September 25th, 2018
By Zubair Hasan
This study explores the causes and impact of predatory online publishing on Islamic economics and finance and takes a literature scan to identify the origin and expansion of predatory publishing, as references listed in the paper show. The personal experience and observation of the author over the decades of teaching at various universities endorse the evidence. Its originality lays in initiating discussion on an issue of significance so far remaining unattended in the field of Islamic economics and finance. It not only explores the impact of the affliction on the discipline but also suggests ways to curb the malady.
