    thanks for this sensitization, the editor of this journal just solicited for an article from me.

      Good find. I would be amazed if any of their papers are original.

      • herr doktor bimler says:

        Of course that doesn’t mean that the authors are paying extra to republish their own paper; predatory publishers are quite happy to scrape material from existing OA journals and use it to retrospectively create 15 previous volumes of publications.

        Normally they steal the plumage from other predatory publishers, who are less likely to do anything about the theft, but I don’t know anything about “Omniascience”, the victim in this case.

        I think you will find that Omniascience is a respectable publisher. I published in one of their 4 journals, the Journal of Industrial Engineering and Management which is run from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, and it was a scholarly and professional process.

        Thanks, Bill, for providing the information so woefully missing from my comment.

    Their article has a logo of Open Association of Research Society (USA). Initially I thought it was some genuine organizations… Till I read the following on a page

    “”We have many highly qualified and talented employees. We are being multinational organization, we have no room for casteism and give equal respect to all class and creed of people around the globe irrespective of nationality and we do not differentiate among human being/people. We are impartial. We are devoted to serve all class of human being by giving them opportunity to exhibit their talent and knowledge in research work. We motivate their unique and innovative idea and spread to the people around the globe.””

    And this page is beyond hilarious…

    Probably Global Journals is also running this society.

    By coincidence, this morning I got spam from this publisher: https://globaljournals.org/journals/management . I was trying to figure out if it is one of the Global Journals on your list, but it appeared to be a different website (it ends in .org and the one in your list has a .us domain). However, as both have a “Global Journal of Management and Business Research”, I am thinking both are really the same publisher.
    P.S. the writing tips you quoted gave me a laugh.
