Hijacked Journals

Sometimes someone will create a counterfeit website that pretends to be the website of a legitimate scholarly journal. The website creators then solicit manuscript submissions for the hijacked version of the journal, pocketing the money. In some cases the legitimate versions of the journals are only published in print form and they may not have websites.

In the table below, the hijacked journal is listed in the left column; the corresponding authentic version of the journal is on the right.  In cases where no website can be found for the original journal, a link is made to a bibliographic record for the journal.

  4. Pitywriter says:

    Dear Jeffrey, I’ve read the article of Dr. Jalalian and I don’t agree with one of the warnings he includes in his “to do/not to do” list to guide authors. He says that authors should ignore all call for papers emailed directly to them. Well, in the past 8 years, I’ve been the editor of a couple of journals in Latin America and I must say that many journals of the region do that same thing, precisely, over and over. They write directly to researchers and professors in order to ask them for a paper or to invite them to help to spread the call among other colleagues… at least it’s the way many Latin American journal editors work as many of our journals are not as well-known as the English speaking journals (as you should know, in the last few years some Latin American journals have started to be included in JCR or Scopus, but most of them are still in the bottom of these indexes because of their IFs).

    Editors here go after papers, especially if their journals are still not very strong and if they’re trying to make a good job and a good peer-review process (sometimes to get 7-10 papers approved to publish an issue, you should get at least 30, 40 or more). The big difference, and that’s what Dr. Jalalian misses to emphasize, is that authors should make a distinction or look carefully to the journals that ask them directly to submit a paper and then send a bill when the paper gets easily approved (the timeline of the peer review is also a key issue; if you make it right it can take several months). The Latin American journals that I’m referring to here do not charge a cent for publishing. They’re completely supported by universities.

  5. Peter Raeth says:

    Being invited at a personal level to submit a paper is an honor. However, I am quite put off by mass-mailed nagging. This is nothing more than spam. I do not take it to be from a legitimate publisher.

  6. herr doktor bimler says:

    “Research Technology Management” is a new addition to the list, isn’t it? Hilariously, the “Meet Our People” section and half the Archived Articles links are still filled with Lorem Ipsum:
    Vestibulum neque magna, imperdiet at ipsum eu, auctor tristique massa. Donec convallis diam nec…

    Didn’t you used to have Mitteilungen Klosterneuburg on the list?

    • Both journals you mention, Research-Technology Management and Mitteilungen Klosterneuburg have both authentic versions and hijacked versions. The are included on my hijacked journals list here.

    Dear Jeffery Bell,
    Is Excli Journal really hijacked?

  16. herr doktor bimler says:

    Another one for your list — Kasmera
    http://www.kasmerajournal.com/index.html

    Original indexed here:
    http://www.scielo.org.ve/scielo.php?script=sci_serial&pid=0075-5222

    I received a wave of spam from them in December. Alternating with spam from Jokull, Bothalia, Wulfenia, Ciencia ETV, Mitteilungen Klosterneuburg and Sylwan… adding to the suspicion that those journals at least have all been hijacked by the same people.

    In further confirmation, the spam e-mails all include “de-subscribe” links to the same “Arena of Science” junk-publisher website.

  17. herr doktor bimler says:

    Baltica Journal:
    http://balticajournal.com/

    Legitimate version here:
    http://www.geo.lt/geo/?id=710

    The hijacked version is linked to the same crowd as Sylwan and the others (with re-use of articles).

  18. Dmitry says:

    the real website for Terapevticheskiy Arkhiv is here: http://www.mediasphera.ru/journals/terapevt/

    The publisher is very strange with its appstore links and paper-only submissions, but at least it exists and works as many old school Russian publishers.

  19. Aachenac says:

    Dr. Beall,
    You forgot to include on this list your recently mentioned Journal of Agricultural Science (Canada) vs. the reputable The Journal of Agricultural Science.

    • Lida, yes, I agree. This is a completely bogus journal. Its first issue is lifted from other journals. I’ve added it to my list. Thanks for letting me know about it. I will work on the others you sent as soon as I can. Thanks again.

    Dear Jeffrey,

    Thank you so much for this update. Can you kindly comment on this journal?
    http://sci-int.com/
    Apparently it is there in the Thomson Reuters Master list as well but the website has numerous typos.

    Kind regards

    • This is a very low quality and non-standard journal. I have analyzed it and added it to my list. I agree with your observation about the typos, and yes, it does appear on the TR list, a mistake on their part, I think.
      Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

  23. lida farahmand azar says:

    I think ” MAGNT RESEARCH REPORT “original website is
    http://www.artsandmuseums.nt.gov.au/corporate/publications/museum-publications/reports
    and http://brisjast.com/ is fack
    Thank you for your attention

    • Okay, now I think I understand. There is a journal on my standalone journals list entitled Magnt Research Report. However, this is not a predatory journal. Instead, it is a legitimate journal that has been hijacked.

      The legitimate journal is chiefly a print journal rather than an online journal, and it is irregular. It does not have a strong web presence.

      I will remove this title from my standalone journals list and put it in my hijacked journals list.

      The title confused me. I thought “Magnt” was an abbreviation for “management.” However, it really means “Museums & Art Galleries of the Northern Territory.”

      Is my understanding correct? Thank you, Lida, for all your help and patience.

  34. Cristian Simionescu says:

    Jeffrey
    Thanks. I allready send a paper to the real Research-Technology Management (RTM) Journal, it is not at all simple to send them anything, it is cristal clear that it is a serious journal.

  35. […] Czym są takie czasopisma? To po prostu „strony” podszywające się pod prawdziwe czasopisma – często pobierają opłatę za quasi-​publikację. Oczywiście nie jest to żadna prawdziwa publikacja (zatem tych tekstów nie znajdziemy np. w Web of Science), ale nie przeszkadza to takim quasi-​autorom chwalić się rzekomą publikację w czasopiśmie z tzw. listy filadelfisjkiej. Ponownie odsyłam do Bealla (zob. listę ukradzionych czasopism). […]

  36. Zelalem getnet says:

    Dear Dr. Beall,

    I am writing from Ethiopia, and I am a lecturer in one of the governmental universities. Here at my uni there is a lot of confusion and controversy regarding reputability of so called predatory journals. I am wondering if u could take the time to comment on a letter from one of our officials.

    Sincerely,

    Zelalem Getnet

  37. Bryan Groves says:

    Dr. Beall, what about the International Journal of Political Science and Development?
    p.s. it’s published by or part of Academic Research Journals…or at least that’s in the email address.

    • Right, as you indicate, it’s published by Academic Research Journals, and I have this publisher included on my list here. I recommend avoiding the journal and the others from this publisher.

  38. Bryan Groves says:

    pps. how about the Journal of Applied Security Research (Routledge / Taylor and Frances)?

    • I have not analyzed that journal.

      • altaf says:

        dear Jeffrey you are doing a great job, actually i have submitted two paper in one of your said (left side) magazines. now i am confused they demand money. suggest me any other magazine which takes short time and evaluates paper strongly.

  39. Bryan Groves says:

    Thanks!

  40. Muhammad says:

    Dear Jefferey

    May I know the status of JOURNAL OF APPLIED ENVIRONMENTAL AND BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES. Is it a hijacked or fake?

    Waiting for your early response.

    • I think you are referring to the Journal of Applied Environmental and Biological Sciences (JAEBS). This journal is published by Textroad Journals. I have this publisher included on my list here.

      • Muhammad says:

        Dear Sir,
        Thanks for your response, I know this journal is available on your list of predatory journals but it is absent in the list of hijacked or fake journal. My actual concern is that is this a hijacked one or a fake journal because it is available in the Master Journal List of Thomson Reuters under Zoological Record.

        Regards

      • I don’t think it’s a hijacked journal.
        I think that there is another journal that has the same title. The other journal is included on the TR Master List here.
        So, it’s not a hijacking. It is only a publisher using the same journal title.

  41. Kristen Archbold says:

    Could you please provide a LinkdIn tag – I was approached on LinkedIn by a predatory journal editor and have several scientific colleagues who could be impacted by these ‘editors’. You have a Twitter and Facebook post tag, but not a LinkedIn one. Thank you!

    Dear Jeffrey
    I think journal entitled “ Journal of Scientific Research and Development ” with Semiannual ISSN: 1115-7569 was hijacked.
    Iran’s Ministry of Science journal fake recently evaluated,
    I’m urge you, Investigation you more about this journal.
    thank you

    • I have already investigated this. I have this journal included as a regular predatory publisher on my list here. The listing contains two links, here and here. The second link is now dead, so there is now only one website for the journal. I do not see evidence that it is a hijacked journal, but I do have this journal included here in my list of questionable journals.

  124. Paul says:

    Kindly advise me, I have recently submitted an article to Walailak Journal of Science and Technology. Right now I tried to check for the status of the article online but the site isn’t working. Yet my internet is very okay. It has been like that for days now. What should I do?

    • I have known of this journal for some time, but it has not been on my list. However, I recently received a request to analyze it, but I to was unable to access the journal’s website. While I realize some internet problems are ephemeral, some may also indicate an ongoing technological instability with the journal. I think it is acceptable for you to email the journal and tell them you wish to withdraw your manuscript. Request a confirmation and save it. Hopefully their email works.

    Dear Jeffrey Beall,
    I have contacted the Publishing Editor of the journal and he has responed as follows:
    Dear Dr Vafaeeseresht,
    Thank you for your email and the reported links to our journal GMP Review.
    I can say that these papers have not been published in our journal as our journal only deals specifically with regulations for pharmaceutical companies and does not cover any of the topics in these papers from Iran. As such I have no idea who has produced these typeset pages – which bear some resemblance to our journal but are certainly not the real journal. Please let me know if you find any other information on these pages

    With kind regards

    I have noticed there is a fake copy (website) for a journal.

    Original Journal: http://journal.sfu-kras.ru/en/series/humanities
    Fake website: http://dujournal.eu.pn
    I have also emailed the Editor of the Original website.

  129. Is forest genetics your field of study? It’s not an open-access journal, so it is outside of my scope. It looks real to me.

    The claimed hijacked Journal Wulfenia accepted my manuscript which is related to Mechanical Engineering and requested a payment with no identification to method of payment even after I contacted the Editorial board. Because of the above list and some credible reports about methods of research and journal hijacking. I decided to filter this journal out from my e-mail address and to resubmit my manuscript to another authentic journal. May Allah bless those who made this list available to general readers. Thanks to Allah.

    What’s your idea about this journal with follow link:
    http://ardsj.com/
    Is it a fake journal?

  139. wiki says:

    Dear Dr.Beall,
    May you please examine the validity of this journal:
    http://dergi.cumhuriyet.edu.tr/cumuscij/index
    ISSN:1300-1949
    It says the journal is the official website for Cumhuriyet University. It has been indexed by thomson-reuters but the link in thomson-reuters does not work.
    The URL seems legitimate but I think the journal seems strange.
    Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
    With Regards
