Science Publishing Group (SciencePG)

SciencePG is one of the most brazen predatory publishers. Its website (5/13/17) advertises "200+ Journals, 10,000+ Papers, 50,000+ Registered Authors, 2,000,000+ Hits Per Month". It works "in media partnership" with the equally outrageous OMICS International. Here is a sampling of its journals:
  • American Journal of Modern Physics
    ⊖ No editor listed.
    ⊖ The four members of the editorial board of this "American Journal" hail from the Sudan, India, Russia, and the Ukraine.
    ⊖ Published titles include "Modification of Einstein's E= mc2 to E =1/22 mc2".
  • American Journal of Physics and Applications
    ⊖ No editor listed.
    ⊖ The thirteen-member editorial board (5/13/17) of this "American Journal" includes no Americans. (Well, there is a South American in the Department of Basic Sciences, Maritime University of the Caribbean, Catia la Mar, Venezuela.)
    ⊖ Published an article by Abdalla A. Jaber, of Tirana, Albania, on "Jaber's law," which "gives a new understanding of gravity and compares between stars and ball of lightning, and solves ambiguous matters in our understanding of stars, planets and moons behavior" and "explained the relation between gravity and temperature of objects, tying his theories with experimental discovery of repulsion between gravity and heat."
  • American Journal of Applied Mathematics
    ⊖ No American editorial board members or reviewers
    ⊖ Sports articles such as "Mathematical Proof of the Law of Karma."
  • American Journal of Bioscience and Bioengineering
    ⊖ No editor.
    ⊖ The two members (5/13/17) of this "American Journal" are in Saudi Arabia and India.
    ⊖ Publications include "Use of Energy Healing Medicine Against Escherichia coli for Antimicrobial Susceptibility, Biochemical Reaction and Biotyping" by Mahendra Kuma Travedi, Dahryn Trivedi, and three other colleagues at Travedi Global Inc. (Henderson, Nevada), and Trivedi Science Research Laboratory Pvt. Ltd. (Bhopal, India). The article reports that "Overall, data suggested that Mr. Trivedi’s biofield energy treatment can be applied to alter the antimicrobial sensitivity, biochemical reactions and biotype number of E. coli."
  • American Journal of Pulmonary and Respiratory Medicine
    ⊖ No editor.
    ⊖ two names with U.S. affiliations on its editorial board (5/13/17): Dr. Duo Zhang, Pulmonary Center, Boston Unviersity School of Medicine, Boston, MA, and "Setu Patolia, School of Medicine, Saint Louis University, Saint louis, Missouri." No Duo Zhang is listed on the faculty of the BU Pulmonary Center, but he is with another flaky journal that identifies him as "a postdoc fellow at Boston University School of Medicine." That group, by the way, is Research and Reviews -- International Journals. It is "[c]ertified by American Montessori Council" and has "developed a unique education system that is a blend of our Ancient Vedic Educations with the practice equipment of Montessori system."
  • European Journal of Biophysics
    ⊖ No one from Europe on the editorial board, but board members and four peer reviewers supposedly include Khyati Dave, Department of Biodesign, Stanford University, and Peng Zou, Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Harvard University.
SciencePG's home page (5/13/17) is entitled "Become Editor-in-Chief." "Professor title or above will be preferred." The benefits are
☆ Publish two papers for free per year.
☆ 20% discount for paper publishing.
Certificate is friendly offered.
