It has the support of major publishers such as Springer Nature and BioMed Central, and also organisations such as DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals) and Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA). A full list of supporting organisations can be found here:

Is the journal trustworthy?

Use the check list to assess the journal's trustworthiness

Only submit when you can answer 'yes' to questions like: will publishing in this journal raise my professional profile? Will the article be indexed and discoverable?
