Allied Academies' Journal of Forensic Genetics and Medicine

It appears that this North Carolina publisher is allied with the more notorious OMICS group (Beall's page has more on this association.) As the email of 11/23/16 shows, it cannot even keep the names of its journals straight. It thinks its "confidential" advertising has "work product immunity," and it denies that its emailed promises and claims are "given or endorsed by the company."

The editorial board, if the website is to be believed, consisted of the following individuals as of 11/23/16:
J. Thomas McClintock, Department of Biology and Chemistry, Forensic Science Program, Liberty University, Lynchburg, Virginia, USA
James P Landers, Commonwealth Chaired Professor Dept. of Chemistry, Mechanical Engineering and Pathology Jefferson Scholar Faculty Fellow Co-Director of the Center for Nano-BioSystem Integration University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, United States
Robert W. Allen, Professor of Forensic Science and Chairman, School of Forensic Sciences, Center for Health Sciences, Oklahoma State University,1111 West 17th St.Tulsa, OK 74107, USA
Susan A. Greenspoon, Forensic Molecular Biologist, Virginia Department of Forensic Science, 700 North Fifth Street Richmond, VA 23219, USA
James Jabbour, Program Director, Assistant Professor, Applied Forensic Science,School of Applied Sciences, Forensic Sciences at Mount Ida College,777 Dedham Street, Newton, MA 02459, USA
As of 3/16/17, the editorial board was down to four names: McClintock, Allen, Jabbour, and "Francesco Massoni, Forensic Pathology (cardiology, pneumology, neurology),Legal Medicine and Public Health, Risk Management. PhD in Public health sciences University Sapienza of Rome." Dr. Massoni's name also appears on the editorial boards (3/16/17) of
