Journal of coastal life medicine is a university journal of Hainan medical university, China.Why including it in the list
Thank you very much, I’ve got a message from “Dr. Lisseth Tovar” this morning. They must have awaken from hibernation and resumed their worldwide spamming business.
Oh, and no one plays power-politics within the reader pays journals. Oh, certainly not, definitely.
Jeffrey, before you judge particular individuals, it would be better that you read the papers. If the author is wrong, show what is wrong. If you suspect something is wrong, talk to an expert and bring it to the forum. Let the author speak for himself/herself.
Otherwise, you are (of course) welcome to your opinions, but that is all that they are.
thank you very much for uncovering the nature of the “journal”.
If indeed mails disseminated by Dr. Tovar still deserve to be observed, here is an example:
Am 07.01.2017 um 13:02 schrieb Dr. Lisseth Tovar, M.D. :
“Dear Dr. Hasilik,
I wish you a happy new year…”
I also remember to have seen the name of K. Bielka among mails I have discarded last year.
kindly can you advise whether or not journal of tourism and gastronomy studies is a predatory one?
It’s not on my list at this time.
Really awful articles too. Most have a random list of references but no cites in the body of the text, and multiple spelling and formatting errors.
2017 and they are still spamming. Perhaps, their new years resolution is to help people – at least the kind Dr. Tovar offered to help me with anything. Perhaps, I should ask her to update my spamfilters.
Dear Dr. Kildemoes,
I wish you a happy new year. We talked some months ago about the idea of publishing a followup article to the one you authored entitled “Schistosoma haematobium infection and asymptomatic bacteriuria in young South African females”. Is now a better time for you to write something? Is there anything I can do to help? If now isn’t the right time for you to work on a followup to this article, I would certainly be interested in knowing more about your current research.
I will tell you more about the journal in case you don’t still have our earlier emails. The Internal Medicine Review is a hybrid journal with optional open access. The issues are monthly, and published both online and in print. The submission deadline is flexible.
Please get back to me at your earliest convenience.
Dr. Lisseth Tovar

I have also been receiving messages from Kateryna Bielka, inviting me to write a follow-up to one of my previous articles, which she thinks will be of great interest to readers of Medical Research Archives.
One tiny problem: I’m a historian. The article she wants a follow-up for was from a history of science journal and is clearly unsuitable for a medical research journal (it wasn’t even history of medicine!). I told her so twice in September, but now she is back in touch and “hoping that you are in a better position to write something now that the new year is starting.”
I am not sure why this scam annoys me so much, but it does.
[…] Beall’s List of Predatory Publishers 2017 […]
Our new year’s resolution is to list all the resources the Fazel family are using so that you all might easily instruct your mail servers to reject all this garbage.
We currently list 184.108.40.206/24, 220.127.116.11/24, ke-i.org, zel.li, and internalmedicinereview.org. At the moment, rejecting mail that is from these IP address ranges, or is making use of these domain names, is sufficient to avoid this spammer.
When they obtain new resources and start spamming with them, we will list them too. So please, everybody, keep reporting this spam here.
(Our unmanned spamtraps hear from Lisseth and Kateryna quite often enough that we have some material on our own, but the more the merrier, yes?)
Thank you for the work you do – this really is a minefield and I shield off requests to publish, edit and review weekly – and therefore make sure I tell all students and colleagues about your work

sir i had been recently invited as a guest speaker at the BITS annual world cancer congress barcelonia spain .May i kindly know whether its a predatory conference
Thanks for maintaining this site. I just got spammed from Christina Sperling, 1805 N Carson Street, Carson City, Nevada, USA; investigating the eMail header, the mail was originally sent from Client IP 18.104.22.168, which is located in India, and passed on its way atl4mhob18.myregisteredsite.com and mailpod.hostingplatform.com.
Love this one from one of the articles
“Plague is the primary etiologic agent in the development of dental caries, gingivitis and periodontal disease”
Dentists be aware – pandemic gingivitis comming up…
thanks for the information.
faculty, research scholars, students, approving authorities, funding and policy makers have to be sensitised globally on these issues so as to avoid wastage of research outcome.

This journal is from a publisher called Phcog.net, and this publisher is not on my list.
Could you comment on: BRITISH JOURNAL OF MEDICAL AND HEALTH RESEARCH
It's on my list <a href="https://scholarlyoa.com/individual-journals/" target="_blank">here</a>, so I recommend against sending papers to this journal.
