Canadian Center of Science and Education (CCSE)

The Canadian Center of Science and Education "publishes many open-access journals and ... is now threatening to sue [Jeffrey Beall] for alleged defamation and libel." 1/ Beall, an academic librarian, lists it among the swelling ranks of "potential, possible, or probable predatory scholarly open-access publishers."

Journal of Management and Sustainability
Less than a week after I posted a 38-year-old book review on the Social Science Research Network, a Maple Xiao pounced, sending an email for the Journal of Management and Sustainability. Apparently, "management and sustainability" embraces a wide swath of subjects. (The book review asked whether it was proper for a former prosecutor to disclose previously private information about the subjects of the criminal investigations, and it questioned the justifications given by former Watergate Special Prosecutor Leon Jaworski for some of his decisions.)
Email
  • 12/23/15: I have the honor to read your paper "Book Review, The Right and the Power: The Prosecution of Watergate", and really appreciate your contributions in this area. As the editorial assistant of Journal of Management and Sustainability, I write to invite you to submit manuscripts to our journal.
