Suppose that I climbed to the top of a mountain and reported that a fairy on the summit had told me certain scientific truths. Suppose I wrote a paper on the basis of the fairy’s words.
Would you say that no-one who hadn’t climbed to the top of the same mountain could criticize my paper?
The publisher Taylor & Francis is not on my list at this time.
as of 2016-07-18:
I am an Austria-based reader of SOA for approx. 1 year now. Today I came over a website/URL “OSJ” which indicated a Serbian address: firstname.lastname@example.org
OPEN SCIENCE JOURNAL: email@example.com
Office Address: Blagoja Parovica 3, 21000 Novi Sad, Serbia
When displaying (as of Ewa NS, Oct.30th 2013 above) http://www.openscienceonline.com/home/contactus
it shows the New York based Office address:
Open Science Publishers
228 Park Ave., S#45956,
New York, NY 10003.
Any news on that “publisher”? Thank you
Yes, I have this journal's publisher included on my list <a href="https://scholarlyoa.com/publishers/" target="_blank">here</a>. It is listed as "Open Science." I recommend that you not send any papers to this deceptive publisher. It's not really based in New York.
There is no need to replicate Herndon’s rain water samples. Rain water samples have been taken for many decades and have been showing the same elemental consituents he found.
The paper was retracted, at least in part, because Herndon negelected to take into account what has always been known to be the normal load of atmospheric aerosols which, despite pollution, is mainly mineral dust of crustal origin. One of the best references for information of that sort would be “The Atmospheric Chemists Companion” by Warneck. I referred that book to him last year pre-publication. Herndon even denies that coal fly ash could make it across the Pacific Ocean while repeated incidents of Chinese loess regularly does exactly that, or that barium might be found in the San Diego or Phoenix urban areas when barium is almost always found in greater abundance in cities as ordinary pollution from fossil fuels and automotive brake dust.. Then there is the previously mentioned claim that the airplanes he photographs are military tanker type planes. Herndon shows no basis for that identity of those planes, while many of his confederates regularly identify them as ordinary commercial passenger flights. If he wants to make these extraordinary claims he should have provided evidence of them.
Thank you all so much for posting this! Lisseth and Milena also seem very interested in my work on complications from aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage…
I, too, googled lisseth tovar before deleting this email and landed here!
This spam is so annoying!
Mike, the central point here is that the obvious issues with the paper should have been spotted by the reviewers and editors.
The fact that this did not happen makes the whole scientific review process of this publication platform highly questionable.
The retraction is just an attempt of damage control. Defending that paper would have had a disastrous effect on the already tainted trustworthiness of Frontiers.
Actual owner of this company website is Umanath K from Vel Tech High Tech Engineering College, his email id is firstname.lastname@example.org
That's hilarious. The IORSD conference organisers come across as <b>more honest</b> than the complainant.
Mr. K. Kamal, B.E., Journal Manager, IOSRD, India
Mr. E. Padmanathan B.E., Journal Manager, IOSRD India
from the above information, most of the journal managers are bachelor degree holders but handling doctoral degree holder research papers, what a pity for all authors who submit their papers to this organization. it simply degrades their valuable work
hi Jeffrey Beall,
have a look at this paper – “Investigating the Ethernet and Boolean Logic” Vol 3, No 1 Indonesian Journal of Electrical Engineering. This journal ranked No. 1 with h-index 17 under electrical and computer engineering of google scholar metrics 2016. God save the research community.
Once I got a phone from OMICS editor regarding Paper submission at Allied Academic (Biomedical Research)
Hi . Would you please check ;http://www.sciepub.com/journal/AJMCR.
I am not sure if it is fake.
I am unable to access the full text. Also, the full title of the journal is <em>Indonesian Journal of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science</em>. Where is the journal ranked number one?
This journal is from a publisher called “Science and Education.” I have it included on my list. I recommend that you not send any papers to any of its journals, including this one.
please confirm all these things are true because recently i presented my research paper in their conference conducted on Jul 15-16, 2016 Madurai, India. My paper had original work and very valuable I am planning to publish in journal also. Please suggest me what should I do now and How we stop other to publish with them.
if you search for “electrical and computer engineering” under google scholar metrics list ” https://scholar.google.com/citations?hl=en&view_op=search_venues&vq=electrical+and+computer+engineering ” this journal comes first.
New one: NanoWorld Journal:
Here is part of their mission statement, “Similarly hardware stands still at the inorganic level where gallium arsenide and silicon justify the old statement “garbage in garbage out” for any existing computer regardless the nanoscale being reached.”
Just look at those editors!
I believe that this is actually under the umbrella of the OMICS group.
Wikipedia model works because of its continuous review and improvement feature. Predatory journals do not have a review system leave alone continuous review and criticism of the material published. Open access of predatory journals does not imply frequent and wider access, use, criticism and improvement by specialists.
