Its mission statement is “Devoted to publish [sic] open access journals, academic conferences, and provide the publishing services [sic].”
The publisher currently has a portfolio of seven journals, and they all began publishing in 2011. The domain name is registered to an address in Wuhan, Hubei, China, but the site itself lists a Hong Kong address. 
Though the publisher makes its content openly available, it does not follow practices that other open-access publishers do regarding article licensing. Authors are required to sign over copyright to the publisher, and all articles bear a copyright statement.
I examined several articles to see if they contain any plagiarized content, and the second one I looked at did. The article,
Idelhakkar, Brahim, Hamza, Faris and Ferhane, Driss. (2011). “The Insurance against the Energy Risk Could Promote Growth for the Shipping Company?,” International Journal of Energy Science 1.2: 110-117.
contains a passage on p. 111 that is lifted from an entry on WiseGeek.com. There are probably additional examples of plagiarism in this article and others on the site. I am always tipped off when unidiomatic language in an article suddenly becomes idiomatic.
I assume that this publisher charges author fees; however I could find no mention of them anywhere on the site. The journals do contain a good number of articles in each issue, and they are from all over the world, as are the members of the journals’ editorial boards.
I will continue to monitor the progress of this new open-access publisher.
