Psych is a open-access pseudoscience journal founded in 2019 that has attracted racists from the OpenPsych pseudojournals. The latter has been widely discredited and virtually stopped publishing in 2018 after its editorial board including Emil Kirkegaard, John Fuerst and Peter Frost were exposed as eugenicists and white nationalists. All three now publish at Psych and the first issue of the journal is based on race and intelligence and racialism. Psych is published by MDPI, which has been criticized for publishing other pseudojournals and for journals with poor peer review processes that were lacking in rigour.
