Why has Springer Verlag published so many fake and bogus papers? One More Proof in our blog:

Why has Springer Verlag published so many fake and bogus papers? One More Proof in our blog:   Springer Verlag journal on hold for “pattern of inappropriate and compromised peer review” 

Springer has put a cell biology journal on hold, “effective immediately,” after finding a “pattern of inappropriate and compromised peer review.”

An internal review of the journal Cell Biochemistry and Biophysics has revealed a pattern of inappropriate and compromised peer review. As a result, the scientific integrity of the journal cannot be guaranteed. As a first measure, in addition to launching a thorough investigation, we have placed the journal on hold effective immediately. We will be providing further information on springer.com as events warrant.
The journal has an impact factor of 2.380, according to its site, and ranks 124 out of 185 in the cell biology category of Thomson Scientific’s Journal Citations Reports.
A Springer spokesperson told us the publisher couldn’t comment further, as the investigation is ongoing.
We’re trying to reach editor in chief Edward J. Massaro and will update with news as we learn it. [See update.]
Update, 3:35 p.m., 3/13/2015: We’ve spoken with Massaro, but the conversation didn’t clear things up. Massaro told us he was not informed about the reason for the hold, nor has anyone from the journal contacted him since it happened more than a week ago:
I honestly have no idea.
what the publisher’s move is all about, he said, but he denied having done anything unethical regarding peer review.
I have enough information to know what we’re doing and how we’re doing it.
Massaro called the stoppage “completely idiotic” and said it threatened to seriously undermine the journal’s standing.
I’m deadly afraid of the fact that having closed down my journal we may be losing a lot of primo people [who will submit to other publications].

The Egyptian Publisher Hindawi Publishing Corporation is a Bogus, Predatory and Brigandish Publisher with fake review, fake editorial boards and agressive SPAM. HINDAWI has more than 400 Journals without Editor-in-Chief at any Journal. They have reviewers, but if you pay the Publication Fee, you can publish any paper. Most of the members in their Editorial boards are without their agreement.

Block these IP Addresses. They are SPAM sources

as well as hindawi.com and isrn.com following spam sent to our spamtraps. Even their Wikipedia entry mentions their use of spam. We concur.

By the way, we would like to remind you that (in 2014) 100 Journals of Hindawi were pumped out from ISI Thomson:  http://fakeconferences.blogspot.com/2014/10/100-journals-of-pseudo-publisher.html

BIOMED Central (a predatory and brigandish bogus publisher - of course it participates in our real Black list of Excessively Predatory Publishers since 2013) has been proved as totally Fake and Bogus. BIOMED Central accepted and published 43 Fake Papers!

BIOMED Central (a predatory and brigandish bogus publisher -  of course it participates in our real Black list of Excessively Predatory Publishers since 2013) has been proved as totally Fake and Bogus. BIOMED Central accepted and published 43 Fake Papers!

bmc logoBioMed Central is retracting 43 fake papers, following their investigation into 50 papers that raised suspicions of fake peer review, possibly involving third-party companies selling the service.
In November 2014 we wrote about fake peer reviews for Nature; at that point there had been about 110 retractions across several journals. The addition of 16 retractions by Elsevier for the same reason, and today’s 43 from BMC, brings retractions resulting from the phenomenon up to about 170.
BMC has also contacted institutions regarding 60 additional papers that were rejected for publication, but seem to be part of the same kind of scam. Regarding the third-party agents, BMC senior editor of scientific integrity Elizabeth Moylan writes:
Some of the manipulations appear to have been conducted by third-party agencies offering language-editing and submission assistance to authors. It is unclear whether the authors of the manuscripts involved were aware that the agencies were proposing fabricated reviewers on their behalf or whether authors proposed fabricated names directly themselves.
When we asked for more information on these third parties, a representative for the journal told us:
We’ve been told some things in confidence that we’re not reporting on our blog, and the reason we’re not is we don’t have enough evidence to point fingers. What we’ve done all along is point out the patterns that we have noticed, and we’ve talked to other publishers and we’ve talked to [the Committee on Publishing Ethics] to make sure that people know how we’re stopping them.
In an attempt to limit submission of fake peer reviewers, BMC has turned off the automated system that let authors provide contact information for potential reviewers, which we tapped in our Nature story as a major contributor to the problem. Authors will still be able to suggest reviewers in their cover letters.
BMC has also sent an email to editors of BMC journals that addresses the retractions and how peer review suggestions will function without an automated option:
We appreciate that this functionality is useful and timesaving, but we believe it is the ease with which author suggested reviewer suggestions can be ‘clicked’ through that made it possible for authors or third party agencies to manipulate our systems.  It would not be appropriate to switch the facility back on for some journals and not for others, so with this in mind and in the absence of any secure means of protecting against such manipulation across all of our 250+ journals we have made the decision to leave this functionality switched off.
Authors will still be able to suggest potential peer reviewers in their cover letter on submission. We are updating the submission system to inform authors on how they can suggest reviewers and also updating our Information for Authors pages to tell authors that they may use their cover letter to suggest reviewers, but that they should provide institutional email addresses where possible, or information which will help the editor to verify the identity of the reviewer. Editors who find author suggestions useful and are happy to implement some simple checks on the validity of the suggestions are welcome to ask authors to suggest potential peer reviewers in their cover letter.
Here’s the text BMC is using for the notices, most of which have gone live:
The Publisher and Editor regretfully retract this article [1] because the peer-review process was inappropriately influenced and compromised. As a result, the scientific integrity of the article cannot be guaranteed. A systematic and detailed investigation suggests that a third party was involved in supplying fabricated details of potential peer reviewers for a large number of manuscripts submitted to different journals. In accordance with recommendations from COPE we have retracted all affected published articles, including this one. It was not possible to determine beyond doubt that the authors of this particular article were aware of any third party attempts to manipulate peer review of their manuscript.
We are waiting on the full list of retracted papers, but in the meantime, here’s what comes up from a Google search of the retraction notice. We found at least seven in the Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research.

An end to fake papers? New software to check for SCIgen-created manuscripts

springerSorry, fans of papers by Maggie Simpson and I. P. Freely, your days of chortling may be coming to an end.
Springer, responding to a case last year in which it and IEEE had to eventually retract more than 120 papers created by SCIgen, is making software that detects such manuscripts freely available.
From a Springer press release:
After intensive collaboration with Dr. Cyril Labbé from Université Joseph Fourier in Grenoble, France, Springer announces the release of SciDetect, a new software program that automatically checks for fake scientific papers. The open source software discovers text that has been generated with the SCIgen computer program and other fake-paper generators like Mathgen and Physgen. Springer uses the software in its production workflow to provide additional, fail-safe checking. Springer and the University are releasing the software under the GNU General Public License, Version 3.0 (GPLv3) so others in the scientific and publishing communities can benefit.
Springer had been working with Labbé since last year, and funded a PhD in his lab to work on the project.
Our dogs are disappointed that they will not be able to contribute to the scientific literature as easily, but SciDetect seems like a good development presuming publishers actually use it.

David Publishing Company is a SCAM. We reveal every Publisher small or BIG. For example, we believe that Springer, IEEE, SIAM, Elsevier are Excessively Predatory and Brigandish publishers and we explain the reasons in other posts of our blog which is the first in Google Search: "Fake Conferences" with more than 2000 hits per day!

If anyone ever gets contacted by David Publishing Company or one of their many "journals", please be aware that this is a scam. They charge $500 for "publication" (We could find none of their journals using reputable scholarly journal database searches) and most of the content on their website is filler text or null values. Thanks to the author of the below post for providing valuable information on this scam. They also scan data bases of other online journals and conferences (like Springer Verlag and Elsevier) and they send SCAM invitations to innocent scholars. Fakeconferences.blogspot.com has just added the David Publishing Company in our Black List. Our Black List is the only genuine, original and fair Black List of Excessively Predatory and Brigandish publishers. We reveal every Publisher small or BIG. For example, we believe that Springer, IEEE, SIAM, Elsevier are Excessively Predatory and Brigandish publishers and we explain the reasons in other posts of our blog which is the first in Google Search: "Fake Conferences" with more than 2000 hits per day

The real Black list of Excessively Predatory Publishers (see in the right column)


The Blog "FakeConferences" are not interested only for small publishers in ... India or in Pakistan or in Nepal. We reveal also the "sharks", the "piranhas" of Academic Life, the real fraud of Springer Verlag with non-peer review journals, the commercial AIP (American Institute of Physics), the 120 SCIgen fake papers in IEEE Data base, the Elsevier with the numerous fake medical journals with made up statistics for promotion of pharmaceutical products of some companies and all the big scandals in our academic life. Everything with Proofs and Documents!

University of Toronto agrees that WASET conferences are fake. Our blog fakeconferences.blogspot.com has warned the academic community very early about the fake / bogus organization WASET


Fake Conference Advertisement

Phishing AdvisoryIt has come to our attention that a false event (ICCSET) has been advertised as taking place at Chestnut Residence on June 15 and 16, 2015.   A notice about this scam advisory has been placed on Chestnut’s Official Website at this link.  
The website in question, waset.org, appears to be fake, although very elaborate in nature. The scam targets academics internationally, gathering papers, fees, registration information, and potentially other personal information.
ITS has identified 86 more websites hosted on the same IP address, and they all appear to be associated with academics in one fashion or another.  At this time, it is unclear if all the aforementioned websites are malicious in nature.  

What can you do about this?

ITS asks all IT professionals to please inform faculty about this (and similar) scams.  Although this scam does not appear to be new, it does not seem to have the visibility amongst its potential victims that it should.

If you visited this website and provided information, please contact your local IT support for further assistance

Castle made of sand: Self-plagiarism washes away paper on dune particles

sedgeolA group of geologists in China have lost their paper on the aerodynamics of sand particles because the article was mashed together from previous publications.
The article, “The influence of sand diameter and wind velocity on sand particle lift-off and incident angles in the windblown sand flux,” appeared in the May 2013 issue of Sedimentary Geology. It was written by a team from the Key Laboratory of Mechanics on Western Disaster and Environment at Lanzhou University.
Here’s the notice:
This article has been retracted at the request of the Editors-in-Chief. This article also contains significant similarity with parts of text, written by the same author(s), that have appeared in
-Tian-Li Bo, Xiao-Jing Zheng, Shao-Zhen Duan, Yi-Rui Liang, The influence of wind velocity and sand grain diameter on the falling velocities of sand particles, Powder Technology, Volume 241, June 2013, Pages 158-165
-Tian-Li Bo, Xiao-Jing Zheng, Shao-Zhen Duan, Yi-Rui Liang, Analysis of sand particles’ lift-off and incident velocities in wind-blown sand flux, Acta Mechanica Sinica, April 2013, Volume 29, Issue 2, pp 158-165
-Tian-Li Bo, Xiao-Jing Zheng, Shao-Zhen Duan, Yi-Rui Liang, Influence of sand grain diameter and wind velocity on lift-off velocities of sand particles, The European Physical Journal E, May 2013, 36:50
-Tian-Li Bo, Shao-Zhen Duan, Xiao-Jing Zheng, Yi-Rui Liang, The influence of sand bed temperature on lift-off and falling parameters in windblown sand flux, Geomorphology, Volume 204, 1 January 2014, Pages 477-484.
The “slicing” of research that would form one meaningful paper into several different papers represents an abuse of the scientific publishing system.
The scientific community takes a very strong view on this matter and apologies are offered to readers of the journal that this was not detected during the submission process.
Some of the authors have made waves before. We also found this correction in PLoS ONE of a 2013 article by some of the same authors titled “Incident Angle of Saltating Particles in Wind-Blown Sand”:
Multiple funding organizations and grants were incorrectly omitted from the Funding Statement. The Funding Statement should read: “This research was supported by grants from the National Natural Science Foundation of China (Numbers 11072097, 11232006, 11202088, 10972164, 11121202), National Key Technology R&D Program (2013BAC07B01), the Science Foundation of Ministry of Education of China (Number 308022), Fundamental Research Funds for the Central Universities (Numbers lzujbky-2009-k01, lzujbky-2012-203) and the Project of the Ministry of Science and Technology of China (Number 2009CB421304). The authors express their sincere appreciation to the supports. The funders had no role in study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript.”
We emailed Tian-Li Bo for comment and received a short email:
I’m sorry for this matter to bother you. I agree to retract the paper. We have no other articles need to be retracted.

Elements of Fluid Dynamics is intended to be a basic textbook, useful for undergraduate and graduate students in different fields of engineering, as well as in physics and applied mathematics. The main objective of the book is to provide an introduction to fluid dynamics in a simultaneously rigorous and accessible way, and its approach follows the idea that both the generation mechanisms and the main features of the fluid dynamic loads can be satisfactorily understood only after the equations of fluid motion and all their physical and mathematical implications have been thoroughly assimilated. Therefore, the complete equations of motion of a compressible viscous fluid are first derived and their physical and mathematical aspects are thoroughly discussed. Subsequently, the necessity of simplified treatments is highlighted, and a detailed analysis is made of the assumptions and range of applicability of the incompressible flow model, which is then adopted for most of the rest of the book. Furthermore, the role of the generation and dynamics of vorticity on the development of different flows is emphasized, as well as its influence on the characteristics, magnitude and predictability of the fluid dynamic loads acting on moving bodies.

The blog  http://iaria-highsci.blogspot.com/ reveals the dark role of ACM and IEEE:
They discovered an IEEE/ACM crappy event (they called it ... conference) that publish in the same Proceedings all the junk and garbage of the academia:
In the same volume they publish everything: Full Papers, Short Notes, Abstracts, Demos, Power Point Presentations, Exhibitions, Book Inspections, Seminars and Proposals for Projects. The most junk and the most predatory fake IEEE / fake ACM conference is here:
The blog  http://iaria-highsci.blogspot.com/ reported today:

Fake IEEE Conference is cosponsored by ... ACM, publishes Full Papers, Short Notes, Abstracts, Demos, Power Point Presentations, Exhibitions, Book Inspections, Seminars and Proposals for Projects in the same volume! Shame IEEE!
This is the SPAM of the IEEE/ACM Fake, Bogus, Predatory, Scam, Sham, Junk Conference. Low quality and NO REVIEWERS at all.
