    Is this a duotrope thing, or do I need something else?

    Anyone know a place where I can look up a publisher, and see what people think about them?

    Preditors & Editors is a good way to find out if a particular publisher has a bad track record. Googling the name of the publisher can also be very effective.

    Duotrope does collect feedback about publishers, but I believe it's limited to things like response time and whether the response received was personal or not.

    Duotrope is also now a subscription site, so their data may not be as broad or deep as it once was.

    Also, it doesn't hurt to just google the publisher's name and see what comes up.
