From 2008 - Jan. 2017, Jeffrey Beall, a University of Colorado Denver librarian, maintained a list of predatory publishers. In January, 2017, the list was abruptly taken down. There are archived versions of the list that can be found online, but the list is no longer being maintained. There were critics of the list, including Joseph Esposito in The Scholarly Kitchen (December 16, 2013). Inside Higher Ed reported on the removal of Beall's List on January 18, 2017.
