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:
http://hal.archives-ouvertes.fr/docs/00/71/35/55/PDF/0-FakeDetectionSci-Perso.pdf
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.

The following IEEE Conference has accepted several SCIgen (fake) papers. The organisers sent letter of acceptance for the several fake (SCIgen) papers

The following IEEE Conference has accepted several SCIgen (fake) papers.
The organisers sent letter of acceptance for the several fake (SCIgen) papers
and now they try to claim that they did not send any letter of acceptance.
One more fraud from the criminal IEEE

Dear IEEE CIS member,

We have noticed a recent increase in emails that come from an outside
source not affiliated with IEEE WCCI 2012 regarding this conference.

Should you happen to receive any email regarding our conferences or other
activities from a non-IEEE approved source, please ignore them and forward
the information to our attention through Jo-Ellen Snyder at
j.e.snyder@ieee.org.

Please note that the conference website for IEEE WCCI 2012 remains:
www.ieee-wcci2012.org

We look forward to seeing you in Brisbane next year!

Sincerely,

Gary Yen, IEEE CIS President
Gary Fogel, IEEE CIS VP Conferences


Best regards,

Jo-Ellen

  1. This is to report to the research community that the SEDE-2011 conference (http://mavs.utdallas.edu/SEDE2011) accepted a fake paper:

    Name of Conference: SEDE-2011 20th International Conference on Software Engineering and Data Engineering
    Date: June 20-22, 2011
    Conference Web Site: http://mavs.utdallas.edu/SEDE2011
    Organizers: Narayan C. Debnath and Mary Ann Sullivan
    Conference Organization: International Society for Computers and their Applications (http://www.isca-hq.org)

    The SEDE-2011 conference claims that submissions/papers are reviewed/refereed BUT they are not properly reviewed/refereed.

    The fake paper was submitted for evaluation on https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/SEDE2011/ on February 7, 2011. The notification of acceptance was received on May 3, 2011.

    The following fake reviews of the fake paper were given to us on the conference submission Web site:

    Reviews For Paper Track Paper Submission
    Paper ID 17
    Title Tropist Method for Sequence Analysis

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Masked Reviewer ID: Assigned_Reviewer_1
    Review:

    Question
    Research Problem Definition Neutral
    Knowledge of Related Literature Neutral
    Technical Content Neutral
    Language and Clarity Neutral
    Originality and Contribution Reject
    Overall Evaluation Accept as Short Paper (4 pages)
    Reviewer's Confidence Average
    Detailed Comments This paper has four contributions:

    1. They validate the internet QoS is game-theoretic, cacheable, and multimodal when using autonomous symmetries .
    2. A new client-server information(Tropist) is proposed to demonstrate that A* search can be made adaptive, probabilistic, and stable.
    3. They use extreme programming in the environment of IPV4 to achieve the purpose in 1, while IPV6 does not work well.
    4. They verified that while linked lists and kernels are continuously incompatible, IPV7 can be made interactive atomic and extensible.

    Cons:

    The paper lacks originality and no significantly technical contribution.

    Question
    Research Problem Definition Neutral
    Knowledge of Related Literature Neutral
    Technical Content Neutral

    Originality and Contribution Neutral
    Overall Evaluation Accept as Short Paper (4 pages)
    Reviewer's Confidence Average
    Detailed Comments This paper validates that Internet QoS can be made game-theoretic, cacheable, and multimodal.
    The authors prove that IPv6 and operating systems can interfere to answer this quandary and they use
    ambimorphic theory to verify that extreme programming and IPv4 can agree to achieve this purpose.
    They finally verified that while linked lists and kernels are continuously incompatible, IPv7 can be
    made interactive, atomic, and extensible.
    The algorithm they proposed can successfully investigate many information retrieval systems at once.

    However, each part of this paper has no clear relationship with others.

  2. Anyone, try this, send them any sort of stupid paper, the journal will accept and will ask you to give MONEY.

    Papers published by this journal has not value. The journal is already blacklisted by many universities.

  3. Science Academy Publisher - A curse for academics
    http://sciacademypublisher.com

    We recently came across a "publisher", or better we would say a "one-man show', here are the list of journals this person proposed to the community. Most of the papers published appears legit and most of them appears to be low quality articles.

    As expected, NO REVIEW is done AT ALL. Not sure? Try it by yourself. Send them any paper and wait a few days to receive an email asking you that your paper has been accepted and to pay.

    Below are the list of journals that have already been BLACKLISTED in several universities. Publication in these journals have NO VALUE!!!!

  4. WORLDCOMP collects every year the worst junk of 5th and 6th class researchers.
    Ban it and tell them that they develop their activities by blatant SPAM advertisements. Some experienced academicians recognize the Arbania and its academic fraud of the laughable WORLDCOMP, but some young scientists cannot discriminate the good conferences fron the Junk. Please, save the new generations and the new children from these academic criminals like Hamid Arabnia and ..."WORLDCOMP" :) :)

  5. Conferences are not graded by the blogs, but by INDICES. So, good conferences are those that participate in famous INDICS like EI Compendex, SCOPUS, ISI, ACM, Elsevier and the like.

    1. This is the most funny story with numerous fake IEEE papers
      Maybe you know it already.
      If you have not learnt it, see how fake and bogus are the IEEE conferences
