Analysis / Bias

Frontiers in Astronomy and Space Science is an open-access journal that publishes information and research related to the field of Astronomy. The journal primarily publishes research such as this The Burst Observer and Optical Transient Exploring System in multi-messenger astronomy era.

Frontiers Media has been criticized for being a predatory open-access publisher. In short, Predatory Open Access publishing is an exploitative open-access publishing business model that involves charging publication fees to authors without providing the editorial and publishing services associated with legitimate journals.

However, Frontiers in Astronomy and Space Science is a credible scientific journal, as we have not found any controversy or significant retractions. Although, Frontiers Media has retracted some studies in other publications that were found to be of poor methodology and not thoroughly peer-reviewed.
