The predatory journal named Journal of Computer Science and Information Technology has accepted a bogus, computer-generated paper entitled “Robots No Longer Considered Harmful.” The paper’s “authors” are listed as I.P. Freely, Oliver Clothesoff, Jacques Strap, Hugh Jazz and Amanda Huginkiss.
The journal’s publisher, the so-called American Research Institute for Policy Development, lists the journal’s editor-in-chief as Dr. Pauline Ratnasingam from the University of Central Missouri.
The publisher has a slick and convincing website that has tricked many scholars into thinking it’s a legitimate publisher. The website looks like it might belong to the State Department or some other agency. There is no real “institute” behind this firm; it is just a predatory publisher aiming to make easy money off of unwary scholars.
Conclusion: Please, please, do not submit any papers to the 52 journals published by the fake and inauthentic American Research Institute for Policy Development (ARIPD). It is a very harmful publisher.
