Mega-journals such as PLOS One are an emerging and successful model of scholarly Open Access publishing. Unfortunately, some new, questionable journals have appeared that are copying the mega-journal model. This review covers the five predatory mega-journals British Journal of Science, International Journal of Current Research, International Journal of Science and Advanced Technology (IJSAT), International Journal of Sciences (IJSciences), and World Journal of Science and Technology. Each of these journals has a broad coverage that allows them to accept a greater number of articles than journals with a narrow scope. This broad coverage means that, with minimal effort and a single Web site, the journal owners are easily able to attract a substantial amount of author fees.
