Shame for IEEE, Springer Verlag, ACM, AIP, WorldScientific, Taylor and Francis, Elsevier

For more than 8 years our blog has identified that IEEE, Springer Verlag, ACM, AIP (American Institute of Physics), WorldScientific (Singapore), Taylor and Francis, Elsevier conferences are fake, bogus, scam, sham, mock and predatory. Now we have additional Proofs:

or google: IEEE 120 SCIgen Papers

The IEEE SCIgen Papers were 85 two years ago:

Several Blogs (included netdriver.blogpost.com) reported this. In 2014, these SCIgen papers in IEEE were 120.

Let''s start with the IEEE SCIGen Fake Papers of 2009. What's happened in 2009:
In 2009, we had received the following email from a girl that was working in IARIA's secretariat.

IEEE Computer Society Press sent it in January 17 (2009) to all the IEEE Sponsored, Co-Sponsored Conferences as well as to conferences
that publish their Proceedings with IEEE CS Press. It is impressive how many IEEE conferences are based on a review on the Abstract!.

date Sat, Jan 17, 2009 at 4:03 AMsubject Confidential: Important CPS Message Regarding Fraudulent Machine-Generated Paper Submissions


TO: CPS Clients FROM: Evan Butterfield, Director of Products and Services RE: Fraudulent Machine-Generated Paper Submissions (CONFIDENTIAL) DATE: 16 January 2009

The IEEE Computer Society (CS) has evidence that multiple (IEEE) conferences are receiving machine-generated papers. In two cases, conferences have actually accepted an obviously fraudulent submission. This is a serious issue that threatens the credibility of your conference, the quality of the digital library, and the reputation of both the IEEE and CS. It requires your immediate attention. Please take this opportunity to ensure that your peer review processes are being followed, and adapt to any new requirements that may be communicated by the IEEE or the Computer Society. No conference published by CPS should rely on an abstract review. It is very important that you review carefully the full text of all papers submitted to your conference. If you have already accepted papers, your program committee should review the full text again. While CPS staff will be conducting random spot-checks of conference papers in the publishing queue, we are relying on you to authenticate the content of your proceedings. Any papers that were not actually presented at your conference need to be brought to our attention, and should receive close review. In known cases, the machine-generated origin is obvious from a reading of the first few paragraphs of the paper; the abstracts are human-generated and do not indicate the quality of the paper itself. In the past, papers have been submitted by “Herbert Schlangemann,” but be mindful that the perpetrator of this fraud will change the approach over time. In the event you discover any evidence of questionable content or behavior, please communicate that to us immediately along with an action plan for addressing the problem. Thank you for your help in maintaining the quality of our products.

Fake Journal Publishing Scam (this time not from IEEE but from
ELSEVIER)

Fake Journal Publishing Scam Here is an interesting scam that I hadn't
seen before. Someone is sending out mail purportedly from the academic
publisher Elsevier soliciting professors to submit papers to vaguely
described journals. The scam is apparently that your paper gets
"accepted" and then you are asked to pay "processing fees", which go
to the scammers without any article ever appearing anywhere.
Then again, anyone who could be fooled by the ridiculous message below
probably deserves what they get.

From: Elsevier Journals
*ELSEVIER*
*BUILDING INSIGHTS; BREAKING BOUNDARIES*------------------------------

*MANUSCRIPTS SUBMISSION*

Dear Colleague,
On behalf of all the Editors-in-chief of Elsevier Journals, we wish
toCommunicate to you that we are currently accepting manuscripts in
all Fieldsof human Endeavour.
All articles published will be peer-reviewed. The following types of
papersare considered for publication:
- Original articles in basic and applied research.
- Critical reviews, surveys, opinions, commentaries and essays.
Authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting recent
developments intheir fields. Papers submitted will be sorted out and
published in any ofour numerous journals that best Fits. This is a
special publicationprocedure which published works will be discussed
at seminars (organized byElsevier) at strategic Cities all over the
world. Please maximize thisopportunity to showcase your research work
to the world.


journals.Parallel submissions will not be accepted.
Our goal is to inform authors about their paper(s) within one week
ofreceipt. All submitted papers, if relevant to the theme and
objectives ofthe journal, will go through an external peer-review
process.


Prospective authors should send their manuscript(s) in *Microsoft Word
orPDF format* to *elsevierissues@live.com* and should Include a cover
sheetcontaining corresponding Author(s) name, Paper Title,
affiliation, phone,fax number, email address etc.


Kind Regards,

    G. Murugesan and Dr C. Chellappan Plagiarism Case - Anna University, India

    We were informed that a paper recently published contains plagiarized texts from other already published articles. Here's the details:

    Paper Title: An Economical Model for Optimal Distribution of Loads for Grid Applications
    Journal Reference: (IJCNS) International Journal of Computer and Network Security, Vol. 1, No. 1, pp 62-66, October 2009
    Authors: G. Murugesan and Dr C. Chellappan
    Authors' Affiliation: Department of Computer Science and Engineering Anna University, Chennai 600 025, India
    Paper Link: www.ijcns.org/papers/Vol.1_No.1/091010.pdf

    While we went through the paper (not completely), we found that texts at different location of the paper were copied word by word from the following listed articles (by the way, you can check yourself, do the search on Google):

    1. Multi-Source Grid Scheduling for Divisible Loads by TG Robertazzi (2006)
    Link: http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/iel5/4067758/4067759/04067800.pdf?arnumber=4067800
    Link: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.61.9294&rep=rep1&type=pdf

    2. QoS Guided Min-Min Heuristic for Grid Task Scheduling by HE Xiaoshan
    Link: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.75.9892&rep=rep1&type=pdf

    3. A static jobs scheduling for independent jobs in Grid Environment by using Fuzzy C-Mean and Genetic algorithms by S Lorpunmanee (2006)
    Link: http://eprints.utm.my/3338/1/A_static_jobs_scheduling_for_independent_jobs_in_Grid_Environment.pdf

    4. Grid Scheduling Divisible Loads from Multiple Sources via Linear Programming by M.A. Moges (2004)
    Link: http://www.actapress.com/Abstract.aspx?paperId=17820

    5. Resource-Aware Distributed Scheduling Strategies for Large-Scale Computational Cluster/Grid Systems by S Viswanathan (2007)
    Link: http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/iel5/71/4302721/04302731.pdf?tp=&arnumber=4302731&isnumber=4302721

    6. Divisible Load Scheduling for Grid Computing by D Yu (2003)
    Link: http://www.ee.sunysb.edu/~tom/MATBE/div-grid.pdf

    We stop reviewing this article at page number 2, column 1, as the amount of copied texts is ENORMOUS!!!! A REAL SHAME!!!

    Due to limited resources we won't be able to go through the entire paper which is 5 pages long!! So definitely, there may be other people works that these people have plagiarized!! We will be grateful if someone can check this and report to us so that we can update this post for all our readers.

    We further noticed that they published a similar paper, probably with a 80%-90% similarities in the content (trying to hit 2 birds with 1 stone):

    Paper Title: An Economic Allocation of Resources for Multiple Grid Applications
    Journal Reference: Proceedings of the World Congress on Engineering and Computer Science 2009 Vol I WCECS 2009, October 20-22, 2009, San Francisco, USA
    Authors: G. Murugesan and Dr C. Chellappan
    Link: http://www.iaeng.org/publication/WCECS2009/WCECS2009_pp213-217.pdf

    These 2 authors can be contacted at: murugesh02@gmail.com and rcc@annauniv.edu

  3. CIIT-JOURNALs also also a duplicate journal that does not have any publication rights.

    Plzz do not print your matter in CIIT JOURNALS

    NO research only copy work is done there
    but ask for laks of money
