Open access Bentham Science Publishers controversy

With more than 116 print and online journals, 230 free to view Open Access online journals and more than 300 eBooks, 260 of which are indexed by Scopus, Bentham Science Publishers is an established name in the STM publishing industry. Leading journals from Bentham Science include more than 30 popular, high impact titles. They include Current Drug Metabolism, Current Medicinal Chemistry, Current Molecular Medicine, Current Cancer Drug Targets, and Current Pharmaceutical Design.
Having such a reputation sometimes leads to problems for the organizations, because the more you are eminent, the more controversies would come your way.  There have been allegations against Bentham Open in the past, but they weren’t able to prove anything worthwhile. Bentham Open is an established name in the industry, with extensively peer reviewed Open Access journals covering all major disciplines of science, medicine, technology and social sciences.
The publishers follow the single-blind peer review process while assessing manuscripts, which ensures objectivity and impartiality. Each Open Access journal has a separate Editorial Board and independent referees who are responsible for assessing manuscripts thoroughly and carefully. Moreover, authors publishing with Bentham Open also get to retain their copyrights to their published content. Bentham Open Access meets the international standards of publications and peer review.
