    Milena is now forwarding emails to another colleague and editorial board member: Dr.xxx, I hope this email finds you well. My colleague Milena asked if I could get in touch with you about your paper titled xxx. Firstly thank you for taking the time to publish this, it was an interesting read. I am hoping to have the opportunity to discuss having a short followup or perhaps a review article published in one of the next issues of the Internal Medicine Review. I think our readers could be interested in a paper with information from any continued research or new data since this was published. It would not have to be a long article, but if you don't have time for this perhaps you could also reach out to the co-authors or one of your students to collaborate. If you have moved on from this line of research I am certainly interested in knowing more about your current projects; perhaps there is the potential for an article that would fit our journal. If you have any questions about whether or not a certain subject fits our scope I can put you in contact with Dr. Chadwick Prodromos from our editorial board. Could you please let me know your thoughts on this? Sincerely, Dr. Lisseth Tovar, M. D. Senior Editor Internal Medicine Review www.internalmedicinereview.org

    I recently discovered a 'Frontiers' account on Scribd with thousands of uploaded articles publihed NOT in Frontiers journals. All seems to be open access/freely available articles, but one would question why a legit scientific publisher would republish other publishers' content; in fact I think it is pretty unheard of?! https://www.scribd.com/publisher/47197814/Frontiers

    I have no reason to doubt that these publishers are "no-goes," but it certainly would be much more helpful if you could give more concrete reasons why this is true. Maybe some examples of experiences people had would be good. How could this spell the end for an assistant prof. in his/her field? Any examples of this that have occurred? At the heart of academics, we are trained to be critical thinkers. We need developed arguments to be persuaded of something. Or at least that's what I have taught all of my students, wrong or right.

    Are you sure? It appears to be a subscription journal, and its table of contents indicates its most recent issue is from 2012. I have not analyzed this journal. Proceed with much caution.

    If you mean the one published by Springer, it's not on my list.

    “Praise worthy prize publishing house” a predatory publisher who charges both subscribers and authors.

    We don't know if they're _just_ another spammer, but they definitely are a spammer and recognized as such on the ScientificSpam DNSBL.

    Isn't it normal for a hybrid journal to charge both readers and authors? Readers need a subscription to access the journal's closed content, but anybody can access the content that authors have paid for to be OA. As for the high price of having your article OA and to subscribe to the journal, I think that is because the costs of producing videos is significantly higher than creating a PDF, although I admit not being privy to the journal's finances. (Disclosure: I have been a member of their editorial board since 2007).

    I was recently asked to review a submission to JOVE. INo flags were raised in my mind by the request. I did it and recommended a revision. I might contact them to ask what the status of that submission is.

    And "22 Nobel Prize Winners are Honorary Members of the CMB Editorial Board" Huge *WTF* to the whole story. It is just as dadaist as Duchamp would like it to be..

    My invitation came from Shirley Paul. The description of the journal, “The Scientific Pages of Metallurgical and Material Engineering,” feels the need to explain that mixtures of metal elements are called alloys. As above, thanks for the service. I see less attention to the ethical issues in physical sciences, but it is definitely there. And it is not just packing publications, but people listing editorial board experience as relevant.

    I hope I am not too late to comment on this issue -- medical conferences have a long history of being held in attractive locales, often tropical or touristy. Participants don't spend 24 (or even 18) hours a day in "serious scientific debates" and can usually afford the extra-curricular attractions. CME conferences are notorious in this regard: spend a morning learning about new stent techniques, the rest of the day at the Caribbean beach!

    […] Finalmente, para os interessados em não cair nas malhas das conferências caça-níqueis, sugiro a leitura dos critérios propostos pelo professor Jeffrey Beall para identificar quando nos deparamos com esse tipo de pseudo evento científico, o qual pode ser acessado (Aqui!). […]

    As first author or , lately, corresponding author I published three papers in oncotarget. Those papers have received a conspicuous number of citations and were, in all cases, rigorously reviewed by three-four reviewers. in all cases their comments were deep, interesting and never superficial. Nothing else to add.

    The process around publishing scientific research is a vastly different realm to understanding the content of the research. Unfortunately, Mr Beall attempts to deal with a mix of these very separate aspects to form a rather ill-informed position around the topic of macrophage activation.

    Further to my comment above (with apology for the typo in "INo" which should be simply "No", I looked at my review again. I treated the submission seriously and recommended that two major changes should be made. However, overall, I found that the submission was credible. Of course, that does not mean that the journal is or is not credible. Perhaps others could look more closely at the quality of the publications. In the meantime, here is an interesting exchange on Research Gate: https://www.researchgate.net/post/Does_anyone_have_experience_with_the_Journal_of_Visualized_Experiments
