Here is the latest invitation from Internal Medicine Review.
Peter Engel, MD, Boston MA.
From: Dr. Lisseth Tovar, M.D.
Sent: Thursday, December 01, 2016 3:45 PM
To: Engel, Peter A.
Subject: [EXTERNAL] Subject: Followup to Dr. Engel’s article?
“Dear Dr. Engel,
I hope this email finds you well. My colleague asked if I could get in touch with you about a paper you authored entitled “Does metabolic failure at the synapse cause Alzheimer’s disease?”. 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?
Dr. Lisseth Tovar, M. D.

The publisher of the first one, Science & Engineering Research Support soCiety (SERSC), is included on my publisher list <a href="https://scholarlyoa.com/publishers/" target="_blank">here</a>. I haven't analyzed the second one. It's technically not open-access.
it’s really run out of South Asia somewhere.
You will be astounded to learn that the people taking credit for the Juniper graphic design are Hyderabad-based.
Would that include the Juniper Editor who recycled, as Editorial, a piece of piffle that she simultaneously submitted as an article to some junk-journal from Medcrave?
Sir, please give me information about conference that was held by cbees (CBEES – Chemical, Biological, & Environmental Engineering), we must send our paper soon, but we are still in doubt.
I got an email from Gavin Publishers today. I haven’t had any prior contact with them. The email came with an article manuscript that had been embellished with the heading “Gavin Publishers – Journal of Education and Research”. The manuscript was an unlocked Word document that still included the author’s identifying information in the properties.
Here’s the text of the email:
“We are glad to invite you to review the article entitled [name]. We found you are the appropriate person to review the attached manuscript.
Kindly review the manuscript and give your comments accordingly whether to revise with major comments and minor comments or accepted the manuscript without changes.
We request you to give your comments on the manuscript within 3days from the acceptance.
Until and unless we get your comments we are not supposed to go with the further process of the manuscript, as your comments are very crucial for the processing of the manuscript.
Note: If you are interested to join in our Reviewer Board, kindly let us know your thoughts.
Hope to have a positive response.
Please do not hesitate to ask any further queries.
Looking forward for long lasting Scientific Relationship.
I recommend you find a better conference. This one is very fishy. They <a href="http://www.cbees.org/journals/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">indicate </a>they will send accepted papers to some predatory journals.
There are two publishers here, Bentham Open and Bentham Science. My work focuses on open-access journals and publishers. I have Bentham Open included on my list. I think researchers would be wise to also avoid all journals from Bentham Science as well.
Yes, I have this publisher included on my list <a href="https://scholarlyoa.com/publishers/" target="_blank">here</a>. I recommend against submitting any papers to its broad-scoped journals.
Not defending IAI, but I feel it necessary to point out that many legitimate societies, for example Geological Society of America, tend to limit talks to 15-20 minutes.
That should read 10-15 minutes. My mistake.

Your expose of Internal Medicine Review was brilliant! Thanks
Dear Sir Prof. Bell
Please comment on—–.I found one of Journal Published by ELSEVIER showing high impact factor on his home page compare to research gate impact factor. Which one is correct?
[…] tell yourself, “Our paper is better than that one,” can lead you on a path to low-quality or predatory journals. While it’s true that rejection rates are extremely high (80+ percent) for many of the […]
I cannot comment on their correctness without seeing them and confirming the impact factor in Journal Citation Reports. Why do you ask such an obtuse question?
Three months later, Zygoscient has apparently received a total of 66 Indian visitors and 132 from the US, according to the counter on their site. Many of them, I suspect, readers of ScholarlyOA who went there to point and laugh.
They remain at six journals, where the text tries hard to project a sense of scholarly gravitas, if not literacy:
<blockquote>Stem cells are a class of undifferentiated cells those are able to differentiate into specialized cell types.</blockquote>
Unexpectedly, the company is <b>not</b> registered in Hyderabad, but rather in <a href="https://www.zaubacorp.com/company/ZYGOSCIENT-RESEARCH-INSIGHTS-PRIVATE-LIMITED/U74999OR2016PTC025166" rel="nofollow">Cuttack (Orissa) with an address in Sundargarh; directors Abinash Mallick and Dr Ashok Kumar Mallick</a>.
Thanks. I received a spam email from them today. Funny thing: they misspell Science in their logo. heh
I dont get your point ……. Which investigation
All their domain names and IPs listed as spam here since January 12, 2016.
I am referring to the UGC blacklist that you predict. I assume they are investigating before blacklisting. Is that incorrect? I am not familiar with how the Indian Government does things. Do you think they will simply adopt Beall’s list with no further investigation?
In any case I went to the UGC website and could not find anything about this blacklist project. Hence my question.
