MDPI Redefines Predatory Publishing
I read about these ghoulish practices in Poland, too… extremely disturbing—and thanks for sharing the expose and the disgusting ‘research’ that gets published. Terribly sad. Of course we’re right on course with it, here in the US…
Thank you for educating us.. misognynistic beyond words. Women are losing their rights and educating us is our only defence.
Grisly, misogynistic, authoritarian stuff. Well beyond the patriarchy and in to the realm of a gestapo, really.

I could help draft a letter, but you are more experienced in this fight and have a wider reach! Let me know if I can help. I am a Doximity writing fellow this year and so I could drop a call to action there, too (2 million members).
