Abstract: Physicians and academic researchers are frequently targeted with spam invitations to submit manuscripts to predatory journals. This study was conducted to understand the nature and characteristics of these invitations. All spam e‐mails received by an academic medical oncologist over a 3‐month period were collected and categorized. Presumed predatory journal invitations were analyzed and cross‐checked against Beall's list of “potential, probable, or possible predatory” journals and publishers. Invitations to submit to predatory journals were the most common single type of spam received.
