[…] Information on bogus conferences […]
Sir Jeffrey Beal,
I just want to hear from you that WASET.org. is really a predatory publisher/conference and what exactly the details that made them on the list of predatory publisher/conferences.
I will appreciate your reply.
Thank you very much.
Sir Jeffrey Beal,

Thank you very much.
First of all we must support "Something is better than nothing". So this blog is serving good cause. Main problem in India is that universities adopted Academic Performance Index and a parameter that journal should have ISBN/ISSN number, which every fake journal in India get easily. Both are leading to increase in use of predatory journals. Students are not aware how to check quality of journals and at same time their supervisors are also either unaware of it or want to increase number of papers. Even Indian PhD students are never taught about publication process.
If dental Council has made it mandatory to publish then Dental association can have their own journal(s) to publish papers of their own student and issue them proper guidelines. Just one notification can start solving problem. A good start can lead to more ideas, improvement and good future..
Now spamming through Atman ECO-Serwers in Poland. We let them know on December 4; no response. We let them know on a different address on December 8; no response. The entire /24 is listed now.
The whole issue is a deception! Avoid it!! They approached me to publish with them a scholarly article about the Cyprus Problem that was already published in an academic Journal. Its been to years now, and they claim that no one book was sold.. I do not believe them. Yes Lap a must to avoid!!!
Moreover, they do not care just to have a look at the text they gonna publish!!! I am not talking about reviewing,, Just to see what they publish. Isnt this a proof of a not reliable stance? What do the want? Just to make profit on the back of the researchers
I got the exact same e-mail, but for the "Global Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences". The sender was the "Global Journal of Nanomedicine" though...
I honestly support behalbiotech's opinion: “Something is better than nothing”. ....
Good grief, they just sent me another one:
At first we would like to wish early Merry Christmas & New Year! May this Eve fill your sack with Santa gifts.
Well, we had a great year with good number of issue releases in GJPPS and now it is the time of the year, where we are thankful for every individual for their acquisition towards our journal.
As we know our heart is very keen to enjoy the Christmas break and I see the spirit of Christmas around me wherever I go. I hope you are able to feel the spirit inside you. For this special event GJPPS welcomes you to enjoy this break and join us in spreading this holiday spirit with your memorable articles in order to succeed the “Christmas Memorable Issue” by the end of 2016.
Please offer your manuscript (within the scope of journal) as a Santa gift on or before 22nd December.
We are counting the seconds to receive your transcripts.

Did you notice that when he's not setting up an index-factor scam, Mukesh Arora is in on the predatory-publishing game? He's behind the <b>International Multispeciality Journal of Health</b>, the <b>International Journal of Engineering Research</b> (which is swamping my e-mail at the moment with crappy spam-mail), and the <b>International Journal of Environmental and Agriculture Research</b>. He has set up a website for each of them,
but they are also listed under his "AD Publication House"... the website (www.adpublications.org) is evidently corrupted or insecure in some way, and browsers prefer not to go there, so a cached or Internet Archived version is safer.
This speaks of a level of incompetence that does not fit well with Mukesh's self-proclaimed technological abilities... his other grifts are all about Aselling training courses in information technology.
Mukesh Arora's journals do show up on the SPARC website as the <a href="https://web.archive.org/web/20161122020204/http://www.sparcindexing.org/indexed-journals1/" rel="nofollow">only ones provided by Mukesh Arora with SPARC Impact Factors</a> (bad luck for the other customers, but what did they expect?).
He was previously buying his Impact Factor from <a href="http://sindexs.org/JournalList.aspx?ID=1031" rel="nofollow">SIS, some other scammer</a>, but I guess he decided to walk that side of the street himself.
Likewise, in medicine, journals have very detailed requirements and demand that these be followed.
Moreover, hardly any journal today gives me more than two weeks to write a review. That had become almost industry standard in my subspecialty.
I just got this email as well. Lucky the quoted article was for an invertebrate paper I worked on and not one of my newer human journal articles or I might have fallen for it.
I wish there was a way I could waste their time and resources too.
Journal of External Medicine has a lovely ring to it!
I have a question: I noticed that there are publishers in your list/website, which some of their journals are in SCOPUS database. How come? How is it possible that predatory publishers have some of their journals in scopus? maybe, there are not as bad as it seems?
Most journals do not charge anything to publish research, so personally I would not pay to have my work published unless it was a journal with a strong, rigorous track record such as PLoS ONE. But in any case, the couple of personal example that you cite do not out weigh the hundreds of examples of predatory behaviour that have been documented by Jeffrey Beall.
Whether or not "Attempt is made..." is good English depends on what words come after it.
Their journal "International Business Management" is in Scopus. How come if it is predatory publisher?
Dear Dr. Beall,
Can provide some good open access journal to publish Internet of things (IoT) based research paper?
Thanks in advance.
Thanks for your remarks; I was commenting from the point of view of mathematics.
