Global Science Research Journals: A Dangerous Publisher, Keep Clear

Global Science Research Journals

A dangerous and bottom tier publisher.

Here’s an exploitative publisher that I think everyone should avoid: Global Science Research Journals. It publishes 100 broad-scoped journals with titles such as Global Journal of Medicine and Surgery, and it is abusive to researchers.

The publisher has been on my list since March, 2014. In my notes, I recorded that it launched with 132 journals, but now I only see 100. There is no indication what happened with the other 32 titles.

A researcher in South America recently emailed me, describing her experience with the publisher. She and her colleagues submitted a paper to the journal but, later, upon realizing it was a questionable publisher, decided to withdraw the submission.

But Global Science Research Journals published the article anyway, even without the authors paying the publishing fees. Upon receiving the withdrawal request, the journal responded,

As you said you can not transfer the money, that will not stop us publishing the paper for you. Good day.

They continue to refuse the authors’ requests to remove the paper.

The publisher’s “contact us” page lists two addresses, one in Nigeria and one in Brooklyn, copied here as they appear on the publisher’s website:

Plot 128 Mambilla Street,
Maitama Avenue, Abuja, Nigeria

2238 pacific street apt 1F
Brooklyn, NY 11233, USA

Global Science Research Journals

Q-4 pediatrics journal.

The covers of the 100 journals are amateurish and may contain pirated images. The publisher has little imagination and only seeks to earn quick and easy money from researchers, with little investment in the operation.

I strongly recommend that all researchers keep clear of this publisher.

    • herr doktor bimler says:

      I am SHOCKED to see one predatory journal ripping off another predatory journal. Is there no honour?!

  1. E says:

    While I’m uncertain if the above image is used on any other websites, I did notice it here on the site for Bard and Didriksen Pediatrics in Illinois after a quick Google search for ‘pediatrics’:

  2. herr doktor bimler says:

    No connection to the publisher Global Researchers Journals (whom you have covered in the past for having skeevy activities of their own). GRJ are actually members of COPE. The present GSRJ claim on their website to have joined COPE and be bound by COPE ethics, but COPE themselves have no record of this.

  3. herr doktor bimler says:

    There may be 100 journals in the stable, but surprisingly many of them have identical badly-formatted editorial boards.

  4. Vijay R. Raghavan says:

    What about International Journal of Engineering and Innovative Technology (IJEIT)?

    Another one: Integrated Journal of British (IJBRITISH)
    Can you think of a more hilarious name?

    Then there are journals that claim an impact factor (from ISRA-JIF).
    Requires investigation.

  5. Adebayo says:

    I am aware a university in Nigeria frowns at Journals emanating from this publisher and thus advises academic staff not to patronize…..

  6. Grim Reaper says:

    The style of the covers are identical to Academic Journals, of Nigeria, when they started out.

  7. Mulu says:

    Dear Sir how dare you include academic publisher in your predatory list. I need justification.

  8. Wodajo says:

    who gives you the right to list the journals of the others as predatory?????

  9. DGR says:

    At the Brooklyn address: Millicent Appiah, RN (according to Google Maps). FYI

  10. Jernej says:

    I just received an e-mail from them, soliciting for submission. It started with “We pray for your prosperity.” The Nigerian 419 scam roots are strong with this one.
