New gay parenting study is a dishonest assault on LGBTQ families.

Jeffrey Beall's bookmarks 2016-07-12

Summary:

Sullins’ most recent study was published in an Egyptian-based open access journal that requires authors to pay for publication, creating a conflict of interest, since publishers who ought to perform quality control have a financial incentive to accept papers, regardless of quality. The journal’s publisher has been criticized for a lax peer-review process that isn't even overseen by a real editor.
