How many SCIgen papers can be found in IEEE Xplore?

A 2013 scientometrics paper demonstrated that at least 85 SCIgen papers have been published by IEEE.  "Duplicate and Fake Publications in the Scientific Literature : How many SCIgen papers in Computer Science?".
 Springer and IEEE removed over 120 SCIgen papers according to this research.

    An open message to Petre Dini:

    I read many blog posts, comments and discussions on IARIA conferences quality. As a reviewer in one of their conferences and as a participant who published in the past in their conferences, I will give you my testimony and opinion.

    To summarize, they are totally rubbish and they are only after your money. After they started to struggle to get the IEEE technical sponsorship and after they become so greedy that they don't wan to pay for the publishers they have created their own paper archiving quality. If you try them, you will always notice that you will receive the same set of comments year after year... They have genuine and honest reviewers, however, the whole organisation is corrupt. I strongly believe that the acceptance rate at these conferences is 100%! They are one of the most expensive conferences to register a paper at. They always choose touristic places to hold their conferences at.

    Peter Dini, you money lover, how can you explain to me that a 1st year PhD student is on one of your conferences program committee? How do you explain all of these rubbish publications produced by your conferences? How do you justify the large number of conferences? Since you claim that you are a non-profit organization publish transparent reports on the income you generate from these conferences. Do you spend all of that money on your wife who always sits at the registration desk in all of your conferences?

    Shame on Peter Dini. Stop playing with young researchers lives and futures. Stop trading with science and knowledge.

    An advice to all researchers, do not publish with Petre Dini and Do not be deceived by the easy accept. If you get a reject keep trying in reputable conferences, with time you will get a publication in the right place. A good publication is better than a million bad/IARIA ones.
