#OpenAccess #PeerRevie #TrustInPeerReview #Quality Authors of this paper submitted a bait-manuscript to 104 academic economic journals to test whether there is a difference in the peer-review process between Open Access- and Subscription-based journals.

The submitted bait-article was based on completely made-up data, with evident errors in terms of methodology, literature, reporting of results, and quality of language.

About half of the OA journals fell in the trap! Their editors accepted the article in the journals and required to pay the publication fee. No subscription-based jnl accepted their bait-manuscript.

authors clearly list the limitations of their study and list three potential drawbacks: (1) the experimental design is not based on a random sampling method. (2) The effective sample size is limited (73 or 30 observations).
(3) If from a theoretical viewpoint the evidence that no control group journal has accepted the bait manuscript intuitively supports the key hypothesis of this research, from a statistical viewpoint, it generates a problem of perfect prediction in the outcome model.
