100 Journals of the Pseudo-Publisher Hindawi lost their ISI Indexing and lost their Impact Factor. Why Hindawi Journals are fake independently on their Indexing

100 Journals of the Pseudo-Publisher Hindawi lost their ISI Indexing and lost their Impact Factor.

INDEXING OF HINDAWI in July 4, 2014
https://web.archive.org/web/20140704195531/http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/ai/

INDEXING of Hindawi now:
http://www.hindawi.com/ai/science.citation.index.expanded/


As you can see, Hindawi lost these Journals from ISI and ISI removed the Impact Factor of these journals.  

1) Journal of Applied Mathematics 
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jam/

2) Abstract and Applied Analysis
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/aaa/

3) 98 journals inside The Scientific World Journal which is a collection of 98 separate journals
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/tswj/contents/

Totally Hindawi lost 100 (1+1+98) Journals from ISI
A big damage for their revenue and their profits. 
In these journals Hindawi asks 1200 -1600 USD to publish your "paper". A vanity press!


Why Hindawi Journals are fake independently on their Indexing 
1) Hindawi Journals do not have editor-in-chief

2) They don't have peer review

The review is quite skin and not real

3) A secretariat, usually a person without Ph.D. decides the acceptance of the papers


4) 
They demand a lot of money for rapid publication (Gold Pay-and-Publish Model)

5) They have accepted several  Garbage, SciGen (machine generated) articles.

6) Hindawi has bribed many indexes in the past


Will Hindawi return the money to authors that believed that these Journals are indexed in ISI and did pay for an ISI publication?
