Lambert Academic Journals: OmniScriptum, OmniWaste

Lambert Academic Publishers (LAP) is "an imprint of OmniScriptum." It seeks to publish as many of the "invaluable" "5,000,000 theses [that] are written worldwide in the research industry" that it can get its hands on. According to an article in Slate, with the aid of Amazon.com, it also sells collections of Wikipedia articles as its own books. For additional adverse reports, see
⊡ Warning from Bond University Library about "Your Thesis and the Predatory Publisher"
⊡ Blog reporting use of stock photos as pictures of editors
⊡ Same blogger claiming LAP is "a company based in Mauritius and Eastern Europe" rather than Germany, as advertised

    Re: Kaye D’s work at the Penn State University
    Dear Kaye D,
    I am Dyviah Ramnatsing from Lambert Academic Publishing. Your work « KINSHIP MATCHING WITH DNA DATABASES (AKA “FAMILIAL SEARCHING”): LEGAL AND ETHICAL ARGUMENTS » from Penn State University would be of interest to an international audience, and that is why I am writing to you. We know it is not conventional for a publisher to pro-actively reach out to authors, but we are not a conventional publisher. ... We are looking for authors in the field you have researched and your work has caught our interest. We are interested to publish it as a printed book. Let me know how this sounds to you and I can get back to you with a detailed brochure.
    Sincere regards,
    Dyviah Ramnatsing

    Re: Inquiry regarding Kaye D’s work at the Penn State University
    Dear Kaye D,
    I wanted to confirm if you received my previous email about the free-of-charge publishing of your work « KINSHIP MATCHING WITH DNA DATABASES (AKA “FAMILIAL SEARCHING”): LEGAL AND ETHICAL ARGUMENTS » [an obscure 2011 talk that never was reduced to writing]. Just in case you need additional information to decide – here is an overview of what we do and who our authors are - http://brochure.omniscriptum.com/info-lap/0537275001445433253. Please give me a short feedback if you are interested in getting your work published. We would surely be sad to see your work's full potential go un-explored, and you would give us a hard time finding something similar in your field of research, so please take a moment to consider before blindly saying no. Thank you in advance!
    Sincere regards,
    Dyviah Ramnatsing

    Dear Kaye D,
    I hope you are doing well! I wanted to ask if you had a look at our brochure? If you have some questions (and I am sure you do because publishing your work is a major achievement), let me know if we can arrange a phone call to discuss further. If publishing your work is not interesting for you, just drop me a short reply.
