Bogus Organization Publishes Over 300 Open-Access Journals

International Organization of Scientific Research and Development

Another bogus organization that wants your money.

The International Organization of Scientific Research and Development (IOSRD) launched recently with 3.94 x 102 journals. It’s a bogus organization that only wants to make easy money from scholarly authors.

It’s based in Madras … er, Chennai, India, a place where things tend to multiply a lot. It tries to present itself as a scholarly society (thus the term “Organization” in its name), but it is probably just one guy with a lot of free time to copy or make up journal titles.

When I added this “Organization” to my list on July 5th, it had 382 journals — now it has 394, so it is growing as we speak. You can see a full list of the journals here.

The journals are all broad in scope (for example, Journal of Housing), and many of the journals have titles that are near matches to existing journals.

The publisher uses the open-source Open Journal Systems software to manage all the journals.

International Journal of Ceramic


The publisher has prepared a formal journal cover image for each of the journals, apparently lifting a picture from the internet every time. Here (above) is the cover image for International Journal of Ceramic [sic].

None of the journals I looked at had editorial boards or published articles, but I admit to not examining each and every one.

This publisher stands out for its audacity. I found no information on how much it costs to publish in the IOSRD journals, and it will be interesting to see if anyone actually does submit an article to any of them.

33 Responses to Bogus Organization Publishes Over 300 Open-Access Journals

  1. Koushik Pal says:

    This will only earn bad name for the true hardworking Indian publishers. Legitimate becomes illegitimate when the bastards swarm the scene.

  2. Bonbon says:

    The font they use for their name in the first image is Comic Sans MS.

    “Use of Comic Sans MS” should clearly be among the list of factors used to determine if a publisher is predatory.

  3. herr doktor bimler says:

    The lower image (Journal of Black Holes) turns out to have been stolen from the University of Warwick (who credit Mark Garlick for the artwork). Perhaps the IOSRD was inspired by the Journal of Cosmology, specialists in that Christian Psychedelic-Rock Album-Cover style of graphic design.

    I found no information on how much it costs to publish in the IOSRD journals
    $70 at the International Journal of Engineering. The IJE is now up to Vol 3, #2, and is perhaps the longest-established ass in the stable.

    Note the New Journal Registration Form

    for eager readers keen to do the grifter’s work for him by running their own predatory journal under the IOSRD umbrella. Only $160 / year! (with additional charges if the enthusiastic editor wants to provide the new journal with “Doi, Cross Reference, CC Atribution 4, Language editing, Plagiarism testing” — yeah right).

    Oh look, the scammer promises a Digital Library!

    International Organization of Scientific Research and Development (IOSRD) Digital Library
    Welcome to the IOSRD Digital Library…
    The IOSRD Digital Library (IDL) is a state-wide metadata repository for digital resources created by Pennsylvania libraries, museums, educational institutions, and other cultural heritage organizations. IDL provides researchers with an aggregated search interface for these digital materials. This search tool will increase exposure to Pennsylvania’s digital resources and make them more available on the open Web.

    Now he’s branching into the Conference con, which is probably where the money is:

  4. […] Para un listado completo de las revistas, véase el apéndice del artículo de Beall. […]

  5. jj says:

    Now at 398 journals.
    That one is nice: “Global Journal of Mastery Learning”: “This particular journal called Global Journal of Mastery Learning is deals with the goal of mastery learning approaches is to have all students learn instructional material at roughly equivalent, high levels.”

  6. herr doktor bimler says:

    it is probably just one guy with a lot of free time to copy or make up journal titles

    It turns out to be more complicated than that. More information about IOSRD is helpfully provided in their Conference web-pages.
    Consider, in particular, “2nd International Conference on Researches in Science, Management and Engineering (ICRSME2016)” —

    The organisers and patrons include

    Mrs. K. Uma, Director, International Organization of Scientific Research and Development (IOSRD), India:
    Mrs. P. Dhivya, Vice President, International Organization of Scientific Research and Development (IOSRD), India;
    Mr. R. Velraj, Head-Journal Manager, International Organization of Scientific Research and Development (IOSRD), India;
    Mr. K. Kamal, B.E., Journal Manager, IOSRD, India
    Mr. E. Padmanathan B.E., Journal Manager, IOSRD India

    Then there follows a long list of Associated International Journals, in which the people attending the conference can publish the papers based on their reports.

    While according to an earlier brochure advertising this scamference,
    there is also
    Dr. K. Natarajan, President, International Organization of Scientific Research and Development (IOSRD), Ret. Professor, Anna University, Chennai

    He appears to be a real person, and I would not be surprised to find the other IORSD organisers somewhere in the Anna Uni faculty.

    That brochure goes on to divide the prestigious journals into two classes, with different publication fees, depending on their status. The majority of lower-caste journals are from IOSRD. A shorter list — only six titles — are pricier, but they claim to be recognised by “Scopus / [Thomson] ISI / Anna University Annexure-II “:

    International journal of Vehicle structures and systems
    Journal of Applied sciences and research
    Australian Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences,
    Advances in Environmental Biology (AEB),
    Research Journal of Fisheries and Hydrobiology (RJFH),
    International journal of Applied Engineering Research

    This Annexure II appears to be a White-list of journals maintained by Chennai’s Anna University for purposes of staff promotion / tenure, so a predatory publisher benefits enormously when one of its titles lists into the whitelist, e.g. IJAER. As do the equally bogus conferences that fit into the ecosystem.

    So the implausibly-entitled “Australian Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences” emanates from the equally implausible AENSI publisher, the “American-Eurasian Network for Scientific Information“… that is to say, an agronomist in Jordan. In fact the same dude also publishes JASR, AEB and RJFH. Needless to say, AENSI is on Beall’s List.

    What of the remaining two Prestigious Journals? I’m glad you asked! The IJAER comes to us from the publisher RIP, Research India Publications, along with several hundred equally grasping outlets. In contrast, the IJVSS is the only journal from MAFTREE — “a Section 25 company limited by guarantee, based in Chennai”, and I am happy to believe that it is perfectly legitimate.

    Anyway, the logos of AENSI, RIP and MAFTREE feature on the cover of the conference Proceedings, to acknowledge their collaboration.

    It all looks larger and more organised than a one-man operation, despite the shambolic appearance of the predatory-journal aspect.

    Also, this.

    • herr doktor bimler says:

      Also, this.
      That’s hilarious. The IORSD conference organisers come across as more honest than the complainant.

      • MC says:

        Submitting a paper without knowing what journal you are submitting to….only in India

      • herr doktor bimler says:

        The complainant does make the valid point that at least one journal on the Expensive List 1 of targeted journals (US$700 or 46000 R) is a bogus, hijacked journal (the “Transylvanian Review”). Making it the only journal on the list in which the IOSRD conferences can actually be sure of publishing something (the “Australian journal of structural engineering” is not so amenable to negotiation).

        It is almost as if scamference organisers read ScholarlyOA to see which journals have been hijacked, and are thus suitable to be offered to credulous attendees as one of the potential outlets for their paper. Oddly enough, List 1 is in roughly alphabetical order, except Transylvanian Review, almost as if the IOSRD person who compiled the spreadsheet knew it was bogus, and slipped in the name as #28 (between “Journal of architectural engineering” and “Journal of Medical Imaging and Health Informatics”) in the hope that it wouldn’t be noticed.

        Then there are the seven List-2 journals, available at US$150 or 5000 R; they are supposedly on the Anna University Annexure-II whitelist, but might as well have been copied from Beall’s List. The author has the choice on which of them will print his / her article. There is not much difference between them in levels of fraudulence.

        The four journals on List-3 come with the price-tag of US$210 or 7000 R. Also on the Anna University Annexure-II whitelist. The higher price, I guess, is because they claim to be ISI / Web-of-Science indexed. All scammy.

        List-4 are the IOSRD’s own International Journals. Only 256 of them at the time the spreadsheet was compiled. If your paper doesn’t fit any of the available receptacles, no matter, the IOSRD will create a new one.

        They are, however, “ISI and Scopus Under processing, Impact Factor, Doi, Cros Ref, Google Scholar” indexed!

    • mahesan anna university says:

      IOSRD says revealing information regarding the journal in which they are going to publish is not their policy. what a company who is helping researchers in India by conducting conferences in grand manner

  9. ramanad says:

    Mr. K. Kamal, B.E., Journal Manager, IOSRD, India
    Mr. E. Padmanathan B.E., Journal Manager, IOSRD India

    from the above information, most of the journal managers are bachelor degree holders but handling doctoral degree holder research papers, what a pity for all authors who submit their papers to this organization. it simply degrades their valuable work

    • raj says:

      Dear Sir,

      please confirm all these things are true because recently i presented my research paper in their conference conducted on Jul 15-16, 2016 Madurai, India. My paper had original work and very valuable I am planning to publish in journal also. Please suggest me what should I do now and How we stop other to publish with them.

    • Dear Ramanad,

      We have the More than 300 PhD doctoral committee members, not only handling the BE holders.. Dont degrade to our service to researcher….

        Oddly enough, their websites and e-addresses all turn out to be skuzzy on-line pharmacies pimping cheap v1@gra and c1al1s.

        Then there is the whole cadre of spambots with spam-addresses and names from bad porn movies: Eula Bridges, Kimberly Villarreal, Brittney Guy, Prof. Missy Castro, Chelsea Flowers,…

        So manuscripts and conference abstracts submitted to IOSRD will be carefully reviewed by spambots and potency-pill scammers. Good to know!

    • MC says:

      Why do you have a million journals?

    • MC says:

      Have you ever been a to real conference? You have, like, 20 sullen looking people at something called “ICASME 2015”.
      I also love how every single person gets an award. It looks like that one guy got, what, 7? at “ICDSME 2015”. Lucky!!

      Do you even realize how ridiculous this looks or did it just earn a lot of money?

  11. Dear website owner, kindly Remove this wrong statement by IOSRD

  12. mahesan anna university says:

    So, Mr. R. Velraj, you are feeling that you are doing everything only for researchers and not for money. You are doing everything wholeheartedly. For freely publishing journals you are charging 75000 inr, what for that. just answer this question, it is enough

    • I.P. Freely says:

      mahesan .. stop crying on the ISORD legal organization for they have done excellent jobs here in india to help all science researchers. Please do your informing before you start to cry on all the members. you plainly see this conferences are quite superb with resarch to help all peoples but yet why you not choose to see this?

      • mahesan anna university says:

        Dear Sir,

        please read MC comments about your grand conference, you can understand

  13. mahesan anna university says:

    what is there in the conference please tell me, is it a professional conference, what is your review process, who reviewed the papers, what is the criteria for selection, just within a month you are posting the event and finishing. in this one moth international level papers you are reviewing and contributing to science. if you feel this grand international conference then just understand where are you. In your selected list my fake paper also there if you want i will reveal it. you sent the acceptance letter for that paper also in which I written all nonsense which does not suite for school essay completion which you selected for international conference. before posting a comment please learn english

  14. herr doktor bimler says:

    It occurs to me that IOSRD is following IORD quite closely, in general business model as well as name.

    Another take on IOSRD:

  15. mahesan anna university says:

    IOSRD looking like big cheater working for only money other than any intention. I dont know how many people already paid them for publication in annexure-1 journal, I request them to rise a complaint against them to prevent this kind of activities in future. without feeling shame they plan for more conferences and other activitis.

    if you really publish in annexure-1 journal please send one link of published paper with your reference.

    Seriously government should act on this company to prevent this kind of cheating activities in future.

    • herr doktor bimler says:

      I dont know how many people already paid them for publication in annexure-1 journal

      This is a good illustration of the problems with a ‘whitelist’ of approved journals. It simply provides the scammers with a list of targets for “identity theft” or hijacking.

      Clearly the people at Anna University who maintain the Annexure-I whitelist are aware of the problem — they list the correct websites for 13 hijacked journals (Sylwan, Wulfenia, Jokull, etc). Whereupon the hijackers simply go through the list and choose new journals to hijack. Most recently, the Transylvania Review. Then there is a brief window for profit until the imposture is too widely rcognised.

      It is also evident that the bogus-conference scammers like IOSRD are informed, quite rapidly, when there is a new no-standards website like the stolen TR to which they can direct conference papers. Perhaps they learn it by reading this blog.

  16. mahesan anna university says:

    Anna university please answer for last statements, do you want your researchers to publish like this by running this kind of organization on your own
