    No. This journal is published by AIRCC Publishing Corporation. I have this publisher included on my <a href="https://scholarlyoa.com/publishers/" target="_blank">list </a>and recommend that researchers not send papers to any of its journals. I would recommend that you find a better publisher for your work. Best wishes.

    Hi Jeffrey, Thank you for your good work. Can you please tell me what is the difference between PUBMED, MEDLINE and PUBMED Central? Are the selection criteria for journals same for all three or do they have separate selection criteria?

    I wonder if maybe they rented space for a day or something. That seems to be a thing at the given address, 16 St Martin's le Grand, according to some office real estate services. Funny that the photoshopped building is not the "majestic, period building" at that address. Maybe they do have some affiliation with Elsevier, perhaps publishing in Procedia or some other low quality/no quality publication they are doing (I wish Elsevier would stop that, but that's another issue entirely). It's a mess, really. Glad you have the energy to keep fighting it all.

    I recommend that you <strong>not</strong> use PubMed or PMC as whitelists. Please use Medline as a whitelist. PubMed has no selection criteria and is full of junk. Medline is a curated list of journals.

    Right, the exact picture is here (http://www.ramboll.com/projects/ruk/moorgate-exchange, you have to click through the thumbnails at the bottom). Copyright Peter Cook. If only the picture had a link to his home page, he could be informed and sue the photoshoppers. This should be proof enough of a sham operation.

    The registration data for qingres.com is not anonymized. It refers to "Qinggers Limited", and gives a real address. This corresponds to the information registered at the UK Companies House for "Qingres Limited", formerly known as "Qinggers Limited". Cf. https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/09675760 You can also find names of principals in there. The company secretary, John Paul Heffernan, is, according to his LinkedIn profile, is "Financial Controller at RenAsset Management, Kingston upon Thames, United Kingdom". There are two people with Chinese names mentioned, Mrs Huifang Jiao (British resident, DOB October 1985, address of correspondence 89 Ability Place, 37 Millharbour, London, England, E14 9HB) and Pengpeng Yan (Chinese resident, DOB April 1984).

    I've been spammed by their standard email again today (29/09/2016) : Dear Dr. Gilbert, We still haven't been able to connect so I though I would go ahead and send you a free subscription to the journal so you can take a look at some of our recently published papers. It may be accessed with the below login credentials. Could you please get back to me at your earliest convenience regarding the followup or review article? Login page: http://internalmedicinereview.org/index.php/imr/login Username: IMR2 Password: j12345 Sincerely, Lisseth -- From: Dr. Lisseth Tovar, M.D. Date: 2016-09-25 00:36:24.137 Subject: Re: Followup to Dr. Gilbert's article? Dear Dr. Gilbert, My last email must have reached you at a bad time so I am following up. If you are not the right person to talk to about this please let me know or feel free to forward this email. I am also pasting links to a couple of our recently published articles so you may have a sense of the style and formatting. Current Technological State of Radiation Therapy for the Treatment of Lung Cancer Longitudinal Follow-up Study of Bone Mineral Density in Adult Survivors of Solid Pediatric Cancers Sincerely, Dr. Lisseth Tovar -- From: Dr. Lisseth Tovar, M.D. Date: 2016-09-21 01:03:02.942 Subject: Followup to Dr. Gilbert's article? Dear Dr. Gilbert, I hope this email finds you well. My colleague asked if I could get in touch with you about a paper you authored entitled "The burden of normality: from 'chronically ill' to 'symptom free'. New ethical challenges for deep brain stimulation postoperative treatment". Firstly, thank you for taking the time to publish this, it was an interesting read. I am hoping to discuss with you having a short follow-up article or perhaps a review article published in one of the next issues of the Internal Medicine Review. I think our readers would 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 ask one of your co-authors or students to collaborate or contribute instead. If you have moved on from your previous research interests I am certainly interested in knowing more about your current projects; perhaps there is the potential for an article that would be published in 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

    Yep, I got a similar one, using the title doctor which I've never used in a publication. Third one in a few days. First one was like the initial post, but without the quoted "discussion". Second was a "follow up", asking me to forward to the right person if I wasn't them, and linking to some recent article. Third was the username+password email.

    On a different but related subject, I routinely block at the server level all emails from the organizations on Beall's list using a partial string to catch as many variants as possible, but some of them are getting around this by using no-reply addresses. For example, any email with peertechz anywhere in the sender name is rejected with the message "Unsolicited messages are deleted unread" For OMICS I choose a shorter and ruder rejection message :-) Today I received a typical scam message from peertechz using the address ptjmail.org. The body of the message included this: You are hereby requested not to reply on the sender E-Mail ID. Please reply to this mail on following mail-ID: mail.veterinary@peertechz.com or Submit Paper (for paper submission). We are looking forward to have a long-term, professional relationship with you. This is not the first example of such a workaround. Of course I just add the new domain to my rejection list, but it is an arms race. Do you guys at SciSpam have a one-stop-shop solution for this problem? I've looked at your site but I don't understand how to import your settings to my server!

    Yes, the same scenario happened to me. That is why I am reviewing this :)

    Thanks for the reply, Martin. We found ptjmail.org mentioned in a PeerTechz spam last week and will be listing it. http://www.scientificspam.net/?page_id=2 contains the information on how to use Scientific Spam on a mail server. If you don't operate your own mail server, you need to figure out if you are able to use DNSBL information at all in whatever the other context may be.

    I've been on Wikipedia for a long time now, and yes, this is a problem. However, there's nothing in this case that would make me conclude that Pearce was behind it - of the accounts listed, two clearly had nothing to do with him, and the others can easily be explained given the likelihood of Pearce being referenced on those topics. There's no investigation on Wikipedia - just a single person raising concerns, and no one finding anything to follow up. In regards to your biography being nominated for deletion, that has a much more typical reason behind it. The intention was not to target you, but it appears to be retaliation against another editor on Wikipedia. Sadly, this is not particularly unusual.

    The best thing about Omics is that they actually have a journal on ethics: http://www.omicsonline.org/clinical-research-bioethics.php

    Yes, SciTechnol is owned by OMICS International, of India. You can ask them to withdraw your article (and refund your money), but this publisher does not like to give money back. I am very sorry, this is a dangerous publisher, and there are no easy solutions to this problem.

    I guess it was my turn. Here's what I got. "Dear Dr. Papanikolaou NA, Hopefully, the email reaches you well. I am glad to contact you about a scientific paper you published - "Rational targeting in acute promyelocytic leukemia.". I would like to thank you for publishing this, it was interesting to read. I am hoping to discuss with you an opportunity to publish a follow-up article or a review in one of the Internal Medicine Review's issues. I think any new work you have done in this field would be of interest to our readers. It may be a short article, however you would be welcome to include any co-authors or students that may be able to collaborate. If you have continued research in this area I would certainly like to learn more about your current work. If you need any assistance in determining 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 regarding this possibility? Sincerely, Dr. Lisseth Tovar, M. D. Senior Editor Internal Medicine Review www.internalmedicinereview.org" Dr. Chadwick Prodromos??? That does not sound like a real name. A Greek first name (Prodromos) and an English surname? What are the chances?

    Golden Research Thoughts sounds like a good name for a biography. Or a band.
