    the website is unfinished and still contains Latin filler text

    That was for their Journal of Lorem Ipsum Linguistics.

  2. Roger Carter says:

    The funniest thing is that the address is in Canada and the USA at the same time! Magic.

  3. Juniperus says:

    Some of the journal titles are preposterous.
    3. Journal of Buddhism and Living
    11. Journal of Plant Health and Technology

    Are titles 19 and 21 typos or do they really repeat the same topic stwice?

    Dear Roger,
    Actually, Ontario CA is the city of Ontario in California (CA). It’s in the part of Southern California known as the “Inland Empire”, which is San Bernidino County. It is an area with a lot of warehouse space, particularly for the big box stores that move a lot of cargo from the Port of Long Beach and the Port of Los Angeles to the rest of the U.S. Not exactly a part of California that one would expect to find a scientific journal publishing house!

    Having access to Scholarly Open Access has opened my eyes. We in Africa don’t have the money being charged by elsevier etc. Could you suggest genuine journals and punlishers whose charges are moderate?. Thank you

  7. The Iron Chemist says:

    Are North Americans really considered that trustworthy by the rest of the world? I guess I should be flattered.

  8. M. Ibrahim says:

    These guys are not only blackmailing many young and inexperienced researchers but also wasting a lot of resources that could be utilised properly.

  10. Juniper Publishers appears to have started appearing in spamtraps in early October, but we’ve managed to ignore them until today. They’re spamming from a network in India now. All listed.

    Makes Hindawi look like a venerable institution.
