Iceland business professor Þórhallur Örn Guðlaugsson has gotten himself in some hot water recently. Guðlaugsson, a business professor at the University of Iceland, has published articles in predatory journals and presumably taken academic credit for them, according to the Iceland news source DV.
A very low quality and even ridiculous publisher – Globeedu Group – launched recently with three new journals. The publisher does not have its own website. Instead, each journal has an independent page. The journals are:
- The International Journal of Business & Management
- The International Journal of Humanities & Social Studies
- The International Journal of Science & Technoledge
In Kosovo, University of Pristina Rector Ibrahim Gashi is being pressured to resign after it was revealed he published articles in predatory journals to meet the requirements for promotion to full professor.
There is a new questionable publisher called ScienceQ. Its main contact address is in Taiwan, and it also lists a “Productions centre” address in India. I suspect this publisher may be trying to confuse scholars into thinking it is actually the legitimate publisher called Q Science.
