We are aware that concerns have recently been expressed about the publisher Frontiers, which is a member of OASPA.
We have discussed the situation with Frontiers, who have been very responsive in providing us with information on their editorial processes and explaining their procedures. In light of these responses, the Membership Committee remains fully satisfied that Frontiers meets the requirements for membership of OASPA.
OASPA takes any concerns about our members very seriously and adherence to the membership criteria is essential for all existing members and new applicants. Any concerns, with supporting evidence, can be sent to us directly in accordance with the procedures that can be found on our website.
