6-2013 Beware of bogus journals

Beware of bogus journals, soliciting a paper/article from you. They will use enticing wordings like this, to trap you :: “open access scholarly, online, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary, monthly, and fully refereed journal” And once you bite the bait, you will get very convincing requests for money, under several pretexts. And of course, you will get irretrievably deeper and deeper into the scam. Notice their copyright transfer form which is rubbish, one-sided, and irrevocable. Notice that their website gives no details of where exactly they are located (so, even the Police cannot help you). All you get is an anonymous email addressand some dubious mobile phone numbers. Take a look at the low intellectual quality of the papers already published in this so-called “international journal of advanced research”.

This is just another way to earn some quick money. Do not encourage such impostors and racketeers. Beware ! Dont say no one warned you !
