Scholoxy is an India-based scholarly publisher of six medical journals. The publisher is a massive spammer, and it includes a medical journal with an unscientific title.
The publisher describes itself using poorly-edited English:
Scholoxy Publications tend to publish quality articles on the current ongoing research in the field of Bioscience and Medicine.
We as e-publishers, providing global web exposure for the journals and articles published which is freely and permanently available online for anyone, anywhere as the articles are subject under creative commons attribute license 4.0.
Its Facebook page shows 5,148 likes, but I suspect most of these have been purchased.
Scholoxy also claims to have an office in the U.S. state of Georgia, but a quick Google search reveals that the address they give (11555 Medlock Bridge, Suite 100, Johns Creek, Georgia) is that of a virtual office company.
Of particular concern is Scholoxy’s journal Hyperplasia of Cancer. The title is contradictory. According to Dr. Udo Schumacher, Professor for Anatomy and Director of the Department of Anatomy and Experimental Morphology at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf,
Hyperplasia of cancers do not exist and do not make sense. Hyperplasia means a primarily non-malignant increase of cells, e.g. in the prostate. Cancer is per se malignant and hence no hyperplasia can occur in cancer.
According to the Scholoxy website, the journal’s editor-in-chief is Dr. Dario Marchetti. The journal, perhaps tellingly, has not published any articles yet.
Successfully publishing medical journals requires much professionalism and experience. This publisher completely lacks both.
Summary: Scholoxy is a highly questionable scholarly publisher with six medical journals in its portfolio, including one with a contradictory, unscientific title. The publisher sends massive amounts of spam to busy researchers, recruiting editorial board memberships and manuscripts. Its website is sloppy and poorly edited, it has a questionable number of Facebook likes, and it uses a virtual office address in Georgia to spoof a U.S. presence.
