Yeah, I know. More precisely, Allied Academies has signed a contract with OMICS International, a stupid business decision by this business publisher. If any publisher should know how to run a business, it should be this one. Now Allied Academies will be changing its name to “Allied Business Academies” to hide from its bad decision. Also, the head of Allied Academies is bashing me, punishing me for his company’s poor business practices, and his editors in chief have bullied me.
l have 2 papers published in british journal of microbiology research journal
in science domain
will it be indexed in Pubmed??
ScienceDomain is listed on Jeffrey’s current list ( https://scholarlyoa.com/publishers/ ), so probably not.
Open-access journals (i.e. ones who make articles available to the public for free) generally have to charge a fee in order to support themselves. Subscription journals (i.e. ones where readers or their organization have to pay to access content) generally do not charge for publication.
I find it rather troubling that Scopus would include a journal like that… Their website is downright amateurish using rather cripple English. It also claims an impact factor of 5.121, which I sincerely doubt even gets near its real value (if they had one, but Thomson Reuters does not list this journal, not even in its infamous Emerging Sources Citation Index).
It is not fake, but it is also not a strong journal. Though published by Elsevier (under contract), this journal needs to improve.
Thank you for such an informative message. I was getting some message to be a Editorial member of the journal.
Has there been any further news about the FTC’s lawsuit against OMICS (mistakenly spelled OMCIS at the beginning of this post)? Another commenter said the FTC was supposed to comment this week on OMICS’ poorly written response to their accusations ( https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3115807-OMICS-response-to-FTA-lawsuit.html ), but this doesn’t seem to have happened yet.
what about science Internationale-lahore
Dear Dr. Beall
would you please check about this publisher MDPI which have many journals
the link below:
This journal is on my list, and I recommend you not send any papers to it.
Yes, I have checked this publisher before. Many people ask me about it. They find it fishy.
This publisher was on my list for a little under two years. It is not on my list now. Still, I would recommend you find a stronger publisher for your work.
I have corrected the typo, thank you for the alert.
I also received the same spam today.
One issue is that it’s an overly general title. It’s all very well for long-standing “most important papers” journals with large editorial teams and access to top peer reviewers, like the actual Nature and Science, but a poorly edited start-up journal calling itself something so generalized just smells of “We’ll print anything”. A start-up journal would be better off sticking to a narrower field (preferably one that doesn’t already have over 9000 journals dedicated to it) so that it only needs editors and peer reviewers with expertise in that field.
(I’m still waiting to see a naff journal calling itself the Journal of Physics, Chemistry and Biology, though there probably already is one.)
The <em>Journal of Global Business Management</em> is on my standalone (independent) journal list <a href="https://scholarlyoa.com/individual-journals/" target="_blank">here</a>. I recommend that you <strong>not</strong> submit your research papers to this journal. I recommend you find a stronger journal for your work.
Hi Nick. Thanks, yes, I actually already have that publisher on my <a href="https://scholarlyoa.com/publishers/" target="_blank">list</a>. Thanks for checking.

As far as I know, it’s still ongoing, but there have been no new communications by the FTC or OMICS since OMICS published their “go away u meaniez” attempt at rebuttal (see above).
I’m not sure.
I think I received the same email earlier this year and deleted it.
