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:

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!.

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.

EXTENDED PLAGIARISM by the LECTURER Dr. Nicola MORRISON, UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE

SOURCE:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/2010/jun/19/cambridge-university-don-plagiarism-row

Nicola Morrison, a senior lecturer at the University of Cambridge has apologised to an undergraduate for writing an article quoting verbatim some of his dissertation without crediting him.


Nicola Morrison, of the department of Land Economy, had an opinion piece published under her name in the Journal of the Town and Country Planning Association in April. When the student, who has remained anonymous, was told of its contents, he reported the issue to his tutors; he has now been credited for his contribution. Yesterday, Dr Morrison and the university said that an apology had been issued and accepted.

A spokesman said the article was written "on a very short deadline, without properly attributing some of the source material. This was swiftly rectified, the lecturer has apologised to the student concerned, who does not wish to take the matter further, and the matter is closed."
When the story first appeared in the Varsity student magazine, Dr Morrison dismissed it as "tittle-tattle", and considered the matter "dealt with officially and properly". She said the student concerned was "fine". When contacted by the magazine, the student declined to comment.

The essay by Morrison, A Landmark Case, commented on Cambridge housing developments during the recession.

The student union's education officer, Sam Wakeford, urged the university to learn lessons: "This obviously looks bad, but mistakes can be made by academics as well as students; plagiarism is a very complex issue – work produced in a collaborative environment , such as between a student and their supervisor, can be a particularly grey area. The university must take seriously the teaching of proper referencing techniques."

    Merck published fake journal

    Merck paid an undisclosed sum to Elsevier to produce several volumes of a publication that had the look of a peer-reviewed medical journal, but contained only reprinted or summarized articles--most of which presented data favorable to Merck products--that appeared to act solely as marketing tools with no disclosure of company sponsorship.

    "I've seen no shortage of creativity emanating from the marketing departments of drug companies," Peter Lurie, deputy director of the public health research group at the consumer advocacy nonprofit Public Citizen, said, after reviewing two issues of the publication obtained by The Scientist. "But even for someone as jaded as me, this is a new wrinkle."

    The Australasian Journal of Bone and Joint Medicine, which was published by Exerpta Medica, a division of scientific publishing juggernaut Elsevier, is not indexed in the MEDLINE database, and has no website (not even a defunct one). The Scientist obtained two issues of the journal: Volume 2, Issues 1 and 2, both dated 2003. The issues contained little in the way of advertisements apart from ads for Fosamax, a Merck drug for osteoporosis, and Vioxx. (Click here and here to view PDFs of the two issues.)
