I have found Beall's site informative, since it features a compiled list of predatory journals and publishers. I always reference it when I am contacted by an unknown journal seeking to publish my research. I highly encourage you to book mark the site. It has been featured in The Chronicle of Higher Education.
The “Journal of Astronomy & Earth Sciences Education” invites
education research scholars and public outreach professionals to
submit manuscripts across the broadly defined Earth and space science
disciplines. Based in the United States and founded by an
internationally recognized editorial advisory board, JAESE publishes
refereed articles for an international audience in discipline-based
education research on teaching and learning across a broad range of
disciplines including: astronomy, climate science, geology, geography,
energy resource science, environmental sciences, meteorology,
oceanography, planetary sciences, and space sciences. In addition to
empirical, quantitative and qualitative science education research
articles, JAESE publishes essays on innovative teaching strategies and
systematically evaluated public outreach programs, using a blind,
multiple-peer-review system. JAESE’s first issue is available at www.
JAESE.org, and detailed author submission guidelines are available
JAESE articles are indexed through NASA SAO/ADS, GoogleScholar,
ERIC, EBSCO, and ProQuest, among other reputable scholarly citation
systems. All articles are open-access, meaning articles are
permanently free to readers and libraries without a subscription. The
journal keeps costs low by using an established business model where
authors or their institutions pay a nominal a open-access curation and
publication fee instead of a subscription. Additional information
