    This is just another lower-tier journal from Wolters Kluwer - Medknow. It is not on my list at this time. Its website provides misleading information. The website currently (2016-10-01) states "Impact Factor® for 2014 : 1.256". This should have been updated months ago to reflect the new and lower IF, which is 0.831. This outdated information is typical of the Medknow journals.

    My my is little ol' Joshie giving you an issue? Lol this guy is a clown. Problem is all these academic types can't tell because most have never actually had to work for a living. Checked out what he's famous the for (3D printing, recyclebot, extrusion pretty much) he's acting like he's on the cutting edge of technology and this is all new stuff. First off the plastic extruder has been around since the 60's so we got lots of info about processes and technology. Second this grand environmental idea of recycling waste plastics for filament is garbage. Different polymers (plastics) have different melt temperatures, the screw in the machine is not sectioned (feed, transition, and metering sections) there is no mixing pins, second flight or even screen pack to give backpressure. He's teaching kids stone age methods and telling them they are ready for the world, it's a nice experiment to teach foundations but this is not progress. No one should be credited with an open source license, extrusion is older than the idea of the open license. All polymer processing uses extrusion. Injection moulding, blow moulding, 3d printing even, they all have an extruder component. You are in Colorado, go talk to someone at http://www.universalplasticsinc.com show them this guy's work it will give them a good laugh. Peer review is useless if all the peers are morons... we should hold less faith in the paper people own and more in the logic of their ideas

    No. I recommend you find a stronger journal than this one.

    It appears this publisher has only one journal, the <em>International Journal of Engineering, Science and Technology</em> (IJEST). I have this journal included on my list <a href="https://scholarlyoa.com/individual-journals/" target="_blank">here</a>. Their "archives" indicate the most-recent article is from 2014, so perhaps this journal has died.

    It's not on my list at this time. If you think it should be, I'd be happy to hear your opinion.

    Open Journal of Animal Sciences (Scientific Research Publishing) recently published articles from USA, Canada, Europe, Japan. Research gate showing it's impact factor also? Is the Journal fake? Waiting comments from you-please.

    Scientific Research Publishing (SCIRP) is a completely bogus publisher. I strongly recommend that researchers NOT submit their manuscripts to this very low-quality publisher.

    Kindly let me know that whether AIJCR is a reliable journal or not? I have sent my research article to them and they are now asking to pay 200 USD on some Bangladesh address.

    Dear Sir, Thanks for your valuable comments. How we can believe a journal is not fake? by Thomson Reuters indexed/ intellectual property? Actually I want to know exact criteria-Please.

    The <em>American International Journal of Contemporary Research</em> (AIJCR) is completely bogus. It's from the Center for Promoting Ideas, a predatory publisher.

    I invite you to read the criteria I've established, with help from many others, <a href="https://scholarlyoa.files.wordpress.com/2015/01/criteria-2015.pdf" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">here</a>.

    Dear Beall, It is correct adding "Journal of Theoretical and Applied Information Technology (JATIT)" in your list. I too noticed instances of plagiarism as well as duplication among the published papers. For example: Original Publication was by IJCNA Originally the paper was published by "International Journal of Computer Networks and Applications (IJCNA) in 2014. Title name: Design of a Monitor for Detecting Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Authors names: Tamer Hossam Eldin Helmy, Mohamed zaki Abd-ElMegied, Tarek S. Sobh, and Khaled Mahmoud Shafea Badran Publication year : 2014 Paper URL: http://www.ijcna.org/Manuscripts/Volume-1/Issue-1/Vol-1-issue-1-M-03.pdf Duplicated paper was by JATIT The paper which was published by IJCNA in 2014 was republished by JATIT in the year 2016. Title name: Design of a Monitor for Detecting Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Authors names: Tamer Hossam Eldin Helmy, Mohamed zaki Abd-ElMegied, Tarek S. Sobh, and Khaled Mahmoud Shafea Badran Publication year : 2016 Paper URL: http://www.jatit.org/volumes/Vol85No3/18Vol85No3.pdf Questions are: 1) Does JATIT check for plagiarism of submitted paper? 2) How does this journal survive in SCOPUS? 3) Will SCOPUS team consider this?

    I have just received an invitation to send manuscripts to the Journal of Hematology Research from the same publisher, signed as follows: Ifeyinwa (Ify) Osunkwo, MD, MPH Editor in Chief Journal of Hematology Research Carolinas HealthCare System’s Levine Cancer Institute.

    An article of mine was accepted in the International Journal of Music and Performing Arts. The website seemed ok, the correct information, and they declare: "International Journal of Music and Performing Arts is a fully double blind Referred international journal and is under the monitoring of world's reputed indexing organizations like ISI, Scopus and PubMed." However, the acceptance letter caught my attention ... My paper was accepted with NO change or editorial suggestion, and there is the issue of the publication fee (US $ 200). The newspaper is published in NY, but the deposit must be made in an account in Bangladesh ... After reading all the previous reviews, I'm really determined to not pay this fee and not authorize the publication of the article in any of the newspapers this organization. Someone here was published and was satisfied with the result? Thank you.

    The quoted statement contains indications that the journal is less than impeccable in its scholarly credentials, i.e. at least three English errors. It should read: “The International Journal of Music and Performing Arts is a fully double blind refereed international journal and is under the monitoring of internationally reputed indexing organizations like ISI, Scopus and PubMed.”

    The incorrect English is a giveaway: "Referred" instead of "refereed" or "reviewed" (better). (Note the capital). It is very easy to check if a journal is indexed by Scopus (http://www.elsevier.com/online-tools/scopus/content-overview - click the link for "Scopus source list") or ISI (enter the ISSN into the search box here: http://ip-science.thomsonreuters.com/mjl/). As an OA journal it is possible that some articles appear in PubMed (even though this journal seems to fall outside of PubMed's scope), because of their inclusion into PubMed Central, which is not very selective. To check whether a journal is indexed by the more selective MEDLINE (or the even more selective Index Medicus), search in the NLM catalog (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nlmcatalog/journals). I bet you that this journal will not appear in any of these databases...

    Don't do it! I have been meaning to post a blog post about my experience, but haven't yet: basically I submitted a gibberish paper automatically generated by a computer and it was accepted without any need for revision. If you look up their "NY" address, there's nothing there and it's on a residential street. It's a scam. Here were my "reviewers' reports" which I'd be curious if they're the exact same as yours: "The topic of the article is appreciable. There is originality in analysis. The author(s) do an adequate job of demonstrating the basic parts of the paper. The article is written clearly, terms are defined throughout the paper." and "This manuscript has a strong relevance to the field of contemporary research. The manuscript does explore both a theoretical and a conceptual framework and it is based on specific objective and adequate analysis of existing literatures. Literatures were properly cited. Consistency throughout the paper is notable. Overall, I suggest publish as it is." As you can see, there's nothing about the content of the paper in the reports.

    Sorry, I don't collect that data. Many of the predatory journals use fake DOIs (or don't use DOIs at all). Most use ISSNs, but some are not official; they are made up.

    I think those reviews were spot on for your paper... They read like something that was generated by a computer, too! :-D
