Al-Nahda and Al-Sham Post Publishing House

Five emails from the same journal of the Al-Nahda Publishing House graced my inboxes today. They came from "Editor of JOAAABR" in Palestine -- no individual name or address. Facebook lists Al Nahda Publishing House as a local business in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. A whois lookup shows the joaaabr.com domain's primary IP address is 160.153.129.26. Established in November 2017, it is registered only to GoDaddy.com.

The email promises "very fast, highly rigorous" peer-review -- "it takes just three weeks." At the moment (2/11/18), however, the only article on the newly launched journal's website is "Evolving of Selected Integrated Reporting Capitals among Listed Bahraini Banks." There is a named editor and editorial board (mostly assistant professors).

More spam (4/29/18) indicates that the publisher's name has changed to "Al-Sham Post Publishing (AAP)." Still no individuals and no website for the publisher. However, there are now five articles in Issue 1.
