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!.

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.

  1. The list of "fake journals" of Jeffret Beall is fake itself. He works for Elsevier. Internet is full of reports and posts about fake (bogus) Elsevier journal [Google: fake Elsevier or Google: Bogus Elsevier)
    So, Jeffret Beall created this "list" in an attempt to disadvertize all the others except Elsevier. I know Jeffret Beall. He is a scam.

  2. IFAC Bogus Fake Conference. New Spam from IFAC. Admire how many grammatical errors exist in the title of the paper of "Oliveira" and understand what kind of papers will appear in this IFAC bogus conference.

    The site http://fakejournals.blogspot.com offers the most complete fake (bogus) journals' list including the 6 fake Elsevier journals.

  3. HINDAWI: The biggest academic scandal of fake journals in all epochs.

    Great Tricks from Hindawi and how they included and continue including their journals in ISI.
    First of all Hindawi pays 3000 USD for every Review (Overview) Paper, because they know that the Review (Overview) Papers attract thousand of citations. So, with this tricky way they add journals in ISI and after that ask from common authors to pay 400 USD in order to publish their papers in Hindawi.

    This is an academic fraud and for this reason we put Hindawi in our black list.
    Do not publish with Hindawi. Retract your submitted papers and do not accept to be reviewer in Hindawi.

    Also, in some cases, Hindawi makes big discounts to those put in their paper references other publications from Hindawi. This is the Hindawy tricky and artificial way (but not academically correct) to cheat, to game the ISI and other indexes like scholar.google.com.

    Please, copy-paste this post about the criminal publisher named Hindawi and send it to your colleagues.
    If some of your friends or colleagues brag about their publications in ISI Journals of Hindawi, tell them that Hindawi is gaming Thomson (ISI) and probably ISI will exclude them soon.

  4. Bogus - Junk Journals & Conferences from the Bogus Organization sdiwc.net
    We received several spam emails advertizing the Fake - Junk Journals and Conferences from the Bogus Organization www.sdiwc.net . Our portal has just added them in our black list. It seems also that they have 3 fake journals.


    In their web page they report that their journals are indexed by IEEE and ACM which is obviously false and misleading. Conclusion: Avoid any relation with www.sdiwc.net. Do not send papers to theses academic criminals and do not serve as member in their committees. By the way, just now we see that the majority of the members in their committees are from 3rd world countries.

  8. "Serials Publications" and "Serials Journals": Since they have established pseudoscience journals it implies that they have not organized any real review process.

    One more fake publisher sent us its spam.
    The Publisher is fake because it has several pseudoscience journals like Ayurveda Medicine, Dalit, Astrology etc... You can find them in www.serialspublications.com
    They also have another site for bogus publications www.serialsjournals.com
    Since they have established pseudoscience journals it implies that they have not organized any real review process. They are not OA (Open Access) Publishers, but they are bogus and fake. Please, report their spam and avoid any collaboration with them. Avoid also to have in your CV any paper published in these academic criminals.

  9. All ASME conferences are bogus and fake. ASME Conferences are absolutely junk meetings.
    Our site is dedicated to Fake Journals. We will present FAKE CONFERENCES from time to time though. Such Fake Conferences are all ASME conferences. They do not have any review process as you can easily understand below. The gather hundreds of Abstracts. A Conference with review only on the Abstract is a bogus conference by definition. This is the great proof that this conference is fake and if the central conference (the flagship of a "society") is fake, you could imagine what's happen with the smaller conferences of ASME. ASME is for mechanical engineering what is IEEE for Electrical Engineering. It is a pity that BOTH ASME and IEEE are checked now for their bogus conferences. Set in yahoo or google: Bogus Conferences IEEE or Bogus Conferences ACM.

  15. Sub: Fake acceptance in International Symposium on Computational and Business Intelligence (ISCBI 2013)

    Dear Sir
    2013 International Symposium on Computational and Business Intelligence (ISCBI 2013)is publishing fake papers having no such valid results.
    The humble request to you is that (ISCBI 2013)requires your immediate attention. Please take it seriously to ensure that the peer review processes are being followed or not. It is very important that you review carefully the full text of all papers submitted to this conference.
    This conference is an academic fraud and for this reason it must be black listed.
    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.
    Thanks and regards
    Well Whisher
