We’ve noticed a similar situation being warned about in ISODI journals, a Middle Eastern publisher included on my list of predatory publishers. Their journal World Applied Sciences Journal has this warning posted on their website:
Dear respectful IDOSI authors If anybody called you and introduce himself as IDOSI representative, please do not pay any attention to what he/she claims! Such person may have financial target to take your money and may promise you for publication of your paper without peer review. Please do not follow their instructions; the aim of the game is to take advantage of your cash! It is best for you upload your paper through the web; www.WASJ.org you can publish your paper in any of journals ISI/ISC and non-ISI like IJE, IJEE and JWWT without any charges. I shall try to negotiate with IDOSI financial office to reduce costs and for some journals just electronic version. For any suspicious case you may contact Professor Najafpour at Noshirvani University of Technology Babol, Iran +98111-3210975 for any additional information. You may find the actual IDOSI regional representatives in the following link: http://www.idosi.org/reg-rep.htm
Another journal reporting a similar scam is the Bosnian journal HealthMed. We think we’ve discovered yet another reason to avoid submitting manuscripts to questionable publishers. All publishers — including predatory ones — need to protect their business data better to prevent this from happening further, but I think this is just the beginning of a new trend.
