    The main aim of the article is to link up two bodies of literature, namely the critique of predatory publishing practices and the critique of political economy of established publishers, while introducing a reflection on the dynamic asymmetries of geopolitics and economics of globalizing knowledge production. Our analysis shows that rather than examining two seemingly different issues (predatory publishing vs. established publishers) as conflictual dualism, it is more productive to conceive them in associative and mutually constitutive fashion. It moves beyond a micro-level explanation by (the lack of) individual morality as well as a structural explanatory framework preoccuped with publishing infrastructure and culturalist approach based on ready-made dichotomies of West/North vs South/East. Instead, our analysis provides an account that engages both with morality and geopolitics whilst tackling them as dynamic processes in making.
