Science Domain International

I would guess that Science Domain International is another Indian venture. If there is a main address on the website, it is well hidden. Emails for the Journal of Scientific Research and Reports give three addresses -- London, Delhi, and New Castle (in Delaware). But SDI does not seem to have an office in Delaware. The New Castle address actually is for Agents and Corporation, Inc., a "remote agent" firm that provides cheap incorporations in Delaware. Wherever it may be located, however, SDI has a "thirst for excellence" and "top innovation."

SDI also may be operating as International Knowledge (IK) Press (discussed here) and ResearchPromotion.com. Scientific Spam reported that
Something calling itself “ScienceDomain International Ltd”, apparently of Third Floor, 207 Regent Street, London, W1B 3HH, continues to turn up in spamtraps. They have existed as an UK company twice, but both registrations have been dissolved (Reg. No 07794635 – Dissolved on 14 January 2014; Reg. No 08988029 – Dissolved on 24 November 2015). Nonetheless, they process personal data without having ever registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office, which in itself is a criminal act in the United Kingdom.
All the emails to me offer allegedly time-limited, steep discounts on publication charges.
