Predatory publishing is a global phenomenon and is affecting academics and researchers across the board. In order to guide Busitema’s researchers, the Directorate of Graduate Studies, Research and Innovations (DGSRI) was tasked by the 109th Management meeting that was held on 27th June 2018 mandating the DGSRI to circulate a guideline that will help researchers in selecting the right journal to publish their work.

In response to the above directive, herewith below are the recommended accredited journals. The journals/publishers will be updated from time to time.
