American Research thoughts is a new open-access journal published by a Romanian-Indian team of two people. The title American Research Thoughts is not suitable for a professional scholarly journal, and the rest of the operation is unprofessional as well.
The journal is published by Ecaterina Patrascu from Romania, and Kishor V Shetti, from India. In fact, authors who publish in the journal can send their article processing fees directly into Mr. Shetti’s bank account:
… or they can use PayPal and send the money to Ecaterina’s PayPal account:
The publishing fee is $30. There is no explanation why a Romanian / Indian collaboration is publishing a journal with “American” in the title. Perhaps they think this title will generate more article submissions (and therefore revenue)?
The journal launched even before getting an ISSN:
Ecaterina is the owner of another low-quality scholarly open access journal, called European Academic Research.
The journal boasts that it has an impact factor of 3.1, but the metric is assigned by Universal Impact Factor, a fake metrics company.
In closing, I offer a genuine American research thought — my own: Avoid these two journals at all costs.
