No doubt sir there are many predatory open access journal publishers are active in Hyderabad city. But its not like that the Hyderabad is the most corrupt city on the earth. The University Grants Commission (UGC) of India is now working on the issue of the predatory journals and soon all the predatory journals will be blacklisted.
From Sachin Patil
Some “SciMed Central” titles even after more than a year don’t yet have an ISSN! For those outside the usa ISSN registration in the United States has no registration fee. see:Archives of Emergency Medicine and Critical Care
i posted my work to professor from one id and later from other which i was not aware that it will generate plagrism now.i m in mess how can i change whole of my work which is almost in my words
Ask the second journal to withdraw the article.
Do you have a link to this investigation? Sounds important.
I guess that you mean the open-access journal PLOS ONE. I agree with Jeffrey Beall that this journal is not a (typical) predatory journal. I would anyway not submit my work to this journal. I have reviewed for this journal. The paper that I reviewed had (and still has) major flaws and misleading conclusions but it was published with only minor revisions although I clearly pointed out these flaws in my reviewer report. It seems that the review process was quite similar to a review process for a predatory journal!
I’ll take John Gregory at his word and assume that he is a mere conference attendee and will be attending more Curtis Wyss conferences in the future.
Mr. Gregory demonstrates something that I’ve discovered through my research. No matter what predatory event I’ve attended or investigated or what the organizers do (hide for-profit status, falsely claim peer review, steal identities for organizing identities, funnel papers to predatory journals) there are ALWAYS attendees willing to defend the conference. To them it seems if the event took place and they met at least one other serious academic then it couldn’t possibly be predatory.
Jon Cohen encountered the same phenomena when writing about predatory conferences in Science.
I’m curious to what happened to the paper that already submitted and accepted for publication in the predatory journal lists? What should we do?
In most cases, especially if you’ve transferred copyright to the publisher, the best thing to do is not worry about it too much, write a new and better paper, and submit it to a respected journal.
What about this Conference?
9th World Conference on Educational Sciences (WCES-2017)
University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, Nice, France
I have no financial interest in SD. Being a “shill” [stooge] for SD is not a clear motivation for publishing with SD. The open access policy is attractive. The low cost is another consideration. In the UK many e-commerce are outsourcing functions to India and other lower cost locations. Try having small talk with an operator in Delhi about the weather in Somerset? In the long-term folks got used it and began (i suppose) to appreciate the 24/7 politeness and patience at the other end of the line. The can-do attitude. The good follow-up. Outsourcing to India that is. The Manufacturing industry did it. Financial services/Banking did it. Globalisation is not irrelevant to these discussions. I consult the predatory lists of journals for every paper. The evidence seems really convincing. So why aren’t the authorities doing something about what is surely illegality?
I publish with SD and will continue to do, at the risk of loosing my publications (whatever that means). My experience of their peer review has been mixed but there reviewers did not appear to be from a typing pool of SD employee or fake academics (as claimed in some blog or other). The quality of reviewing was sometimes dubious, rude and irrelevant -but then again many comments were highly useful and adopted. Authors have a right of reply to reviewers. The quality of reviewing is a function of reviewers, not only the fault of the publishing company. To deal with my voluntary reviewing workload of about 1 paper/month – it helps to keep track reviewing good practice as suggested by Provenzale

À propos du Open access...faire attention.
Since other comments had older dates, I wanted to add that I received the email today 11/28/2016. I’m not sure how my research on salamander territoriality would fit with a internal medicine journal.
and just to add to this. A study on epidemiology was reviewed by a chiropractor….
I have published with Cureus and I have to say their Editorial process is quite harsh and nitpicky. In my case I passed the peer-review process with flying colors but when time came for editorial review I had quite a few changes and additions I had to make in order to get it published. This is clearly not a paper for trash science.
Thank you so much for exposing all these con artists.
When you release your work under a CC BY license, anyone anywhere can publish it, including predatory publishers.
This journal is not on my list at this time.
Note that your link goes to a different publisher.
Low quality. This journal is from a publisher called Enhanced Research Publications (ER Publications). I have this publisher included on my <a href="https://scholarlyoa.com/publishers/" target="_blank">list </a>and recommend that you avoid all of its journals.
