Wiley to Integrate Hindawi Journals Into Its Portfolio After Multiple Flagged Errors
Retraction Watch reports that “Wiley will cease using the beleaguered Hindawi brand name … [and] plans to integrate Hindawi’s approximately 200 journals into the rest of its portfolio by the middle of next year.” Among the issues this past year: Clarivate removed 19 Hindawi journals from its Web of Science for editorial quality deficiencies, Wiley shut down four Hindawi journals compromised by paper mills, and Retraction Watch logged 3,400 retractions from Hindawi journals, although it is aware of 7,000-plus retractions.
Retraction Watch continues, “In the current fiscal year, Wiley expects $35-40 million in lost revenue from Hindawi as it works to turn around journals with issues and retract articles, Matthew Kissner, Wiley’s interim president and CEO, said on the [Dec. 6] earnings call. The company expects revenue to begin to recover in its next fiscal year, he said.”
