In recent days, predatory journals are considered as one of the main obstacles in the way of pure and reliable science, in which day by day, they are developing and evolving new techniques to ruin the right path of scientific evidence. The development of these journals is in a way that deceives and misleads many researchers, academic and scientific centres to be trapped in their unethical and illegal webs. The main goal of the predatory journals is to distort the dependable scientific methods and evaluations. In the latest entrapment to the works of these journals, the well-known global health centre, WHO cited and shared a publication of one of the predatory journals as a scientific finding on the organization’s website. This indicates that a serious reaction should be arranged against these journals and more awareness should be shared for this purpose. From this point of view, the Kscein organization has dedicated a specific field of its website to this purpose and set up a continuously updated list including predatory journals and publishers.

The research entitled “Impact Of COVID-19 On Multiple Body Organ Failure: A Review” published by “Indian Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology” the latter was known to be a predatory journal a long time ago.
