Bioaccent Group

The About Us page (12/21/16) includes "sentences" like this one: "'Quality is our first priority' hence Bio Accent open access publishers help the scientific community to publishquality articles related to latest developments happening in the areas of science, Technology and Medical." That is a mouthful from a publisher (on Beall's list) that is "one of the leading Open access publishing house based in Delware, USA." Judging from an email of 8/29/16, Bioaccent Group "invincibly believes" I am a urologist and "selective scientist" who has "enormously contributed." But, wait, a latter email reports that if I do not submit an article on pediatrics, that journal will be stalled. And the physics journal also can't complete its next issue without my "valuable manuscript." It's nice to be so important.

  1. I got the "Jassi Jones" unintelligible garbage almost identical to the wording above under 2/26/17, except it had to do with Palliative Medicine.

    Seems the grammar points to Chinese or Korean hackers.

    Also: DO NOT CLICK ON LINKS! You could easily download a virus!
