Donnish Journals

Donnish Journals has no address on its website or in its "journals." The person or people behind them cannot be found in the registration data for the domain donnishjournals.com (thanks to GoDaddy.com).

Looking into the Donnish Journal of Law and Conflict Resolution, one finds (5/29/18) highly sporadic "issues" usually consisting of single articles of about ten pages. The journal has no editor-in-chief, and as of May 29, 2018, "[a] detailed list of Editors, Associate Editors and Editorial team will be available shortly." All submissions "are made to undergo sectioning" -- which sounds ominous. "Thereafter they are double-blindedly peer-reviewed ... ." Authors can rest assured that "[m]ore than 100 reviewers are working diligently to shorten the review cycle of the academic research publication; and help researchers to pay more attention on the research itself, not waiting for too long, for suggestions from reviewers." They also are informed that "Manuscript submission and their accessibility is not an infringement of copyright." That's a relief.

Sciendo sounds suspicious. The name itself is a bit contrived; the emailed advertising invitation closes with the absurd warning that it might contain confidential information; and the missive refers to "over 1,100 academic journals, 35 databases, and 100,000 books, with more than 1,300 new book titles added to the platform each year."

But that cornucopia comes from De Gruyter, a German publisher that has been operating for centuries. Sciendo is a repackaging of De Gruyter Open, the publisher's previous open access business, now operating separately under the new name in Poland. It supports self-publishing but also publishes journals and works on conferences for universities.

Although Sciendo is a bona fide publisher, some flakiness mars its web site. For example, the list of law journals includes the Journal of Catalan Intellectual History, Economics and Culture, European Polygraph, and Scientific Bulletin. (The Scientific Bulletin, produced at the Land Forces Academy of Romania, "promotes the results achieved in the projects of national and international research, as well as the contributions of personalities from the academics.")

    Subject: Publish Your book with Sciendo
    Dear Dr. David H. Kaye,
    We are pleased to invite you to consider submitting a proposal to publish a book with Sciendo. As part of our wider expansion as a publisher, we are now accepting book proposals and manuscripts in twenty-nine different categories. Sciendo is one of the world’s leading companies providing professional publishing services to the academic market. Sciendo can fulfil all publishing needs for authors of academic and professional books in the English language. To meet your expectations we can: ▸ publish all book types, i.e.: monographs, textbooks, edited volumes, and others; ▸ publish your book using two models you can choose from: using the Open Access model for the electronic version of the book or using the traditional Paid Access commercial model; ▸ publish your book in one of the two options: if you have funds from your affiliate institution or another sponsor for the book publication - publish in Full Publishing Services option; if not, you can enjoy the Sciendo Self-Publishing option.

De Gruyter’s portfolio features over 1,100 academic journals, 35 databases, and 100,000 books, with more than 1,300 new book titles added to the platform each year. Sciendo provides world-class technology, production, editing and distribution services, as well as creative and focused marketing support designed to raise your book’s profile to help it find its natural audience.
    Benefits stemming from publishing services and solutions provided by Sciendo: ▸ Top publishing technology to enhance user experience; ▸ Complete editorial services: copyediting, language polishing and typesetting; ▸ Hardback and paperback printing, at the choice of the buyer; ▸ Effective indexation in A&I services (e.g. Clarivate Analytics, Scopus, PubMed); ▸ Worldwide distribution via our international network of booksellers including, for example: Amazon, Baker & Taylor and Ingram. ▸ Advanced marketing services: mailing to potential authors, targeted mailing campaigns or book press release.

InTechOpen, Intech, Sciyo

InTechOpen's main web pages site are devoid of the usual solecisms and grammatical errors seen on the websites of many smaller and plainly questionable publishers preying on academics. The About Us page describes the group as "the world's largest Science, Technology and Medicine Open Access book publisher." It claims InTechOpen "has published 2,977 books and 46,833 scientific works total by 100,665 international scientists" (whatever "international" means in this context). That would be about 2 books every 3 days and 11 articles every day, 7 days a years, for the 12 years of InTechOpen's self-proclaimed "journey to democratise knowledge."

In 2018, InTechOpen wanted me to pay them 1,400 Euros to write a chapter of between 14 and 20 pages for a book on "Trends and Challenges in Forensic Analysis ? New Frontiers in Forensic Science." I have to wonder about the question mark in the title, but there is not much doubt about likely quality. The subject areas include "nuclear physicists" and "testing." The book description reads:
Forensic Analysis is a field of Forensics to be explored and then executed with a hope to deliver better justice to the mankind. It includes a wide field of forensics unexplored and unearthed, which will be the prime reference for forensic researchers, diagnostic, chemists and physicists for their future practice in their respective fields. The book will visualize and primarily focus on the various aspects of new frontiers in forensic science associated with the production, collection or interrogation of such evidential sample. This will also amalgamate fundamental principles of forensic analysis, protocols and procedures needed for the better forensics. The principles and techniques detailed are then demonstrated and discussed in their applications to real-world investigations and casework conducted over the past several years so that it becomes an evaluation hardcover of all aspects of forensic analysis.
The editor of the book is B. Suresh Kumar Shetty. Dr. Shetty also is an editor for the disreputable OMICS International's Journal of Paediatric Medicine and Surgery.

Earlier invitations (4/24/17, 5/1/17, 5/8/17) sought 1,200 Euros from me for a small chapter in "'Post Mortem Examination and Autopsy - From Death Scene to Laboratory Analysis,' edited by Dr. Kamil Hakan Dogan." Dr. Dogan also edits the Journal of Cardiovascular Diseases and Diagnosis for OMICS International. That InTech finds it necessary to write the following description of "death scene and autopsy" for would-be authors is odd:
Death scene and autopsy may be horrifying for some people. Death scene investigation, post mortem examination, and autopsy are generally performed for the benefit of the living. A death investigation begins with body examination and evidence collection at the scene and proceeds through history, post mortem examination and autopsy, laboratory tests, and determining the cause and manner of death. Although forensic pathology is the oldest branch of the forensic sciences, today many branches of forensic sciences play a role in solving criminal death cases.
InTechOpen was on Beall's list of predatory publishers. The website www.intechopen.com is not registered to its founders. Instead, they use a proxy company in Arizona, obscuring their identities. The first emails came from Teo Kos, from InTechOpen Publishing Process Manager, kos@intechopen.com, +385 (51) 770 447, Janeza Trdine 9, 51000 Rijeka, Croatia.

Other reports indicate that InTechOpen is another name for the venture known as InTech or Sciyo that had a serious reputation problem. See
In 2016, Sage Publishing, an Indian company, purchased five of Intechopen's journals.

Biocore is on Beall's list of predatory journals, and it not hard to see why. Its web pages explain that:
⊘ "Biocore motto is to give the human era with better future. This can be achieved with our renowned editors, authors and reviewers with their exchanged views and knowledge."
⊘ "Biocore has been involved the knowledge on Science & technology to the access way of every individual."
⊘ "With the Open Access evolution, we are making the genuine and trustworthy contributions to the scientific environment without stopping the access to the readers for reading or even downloading the published papers/articles."
⊘ "[A]ll the eminent personalities can search our database."
⊘ "With the Editorial Board Members of 600, the number is increasing with the volume ... ."
And if you are interested in travel (to Dubai at least), "Biocore is going to conduct Scientific Conferences in near future for grouping all the eminent personalities in one lane." These "Scientific Conferences are conducting mail campaigns for getting the support from scientific societies to spread the open access culture." Translation: We are spamming you.

According to the website for BioCore Conferences (5/16/18), "Biocore group publishes 100+ Open Access Journals with over 10,000 renowned persons." The Biocore Journals homepage states that "Biocore Group hosts 30+ Open Access Scientific Journals." Whatever the exact number may be, they all seem to emanate, impressively, from an apartment at 3409 Grove Gate CT, APT-1712, Richmond-23233, Virginia.

The people behind the domain biocoreopen.org are hidden by a proxy registration. The Virginia address, according to homemetry is occupied by Jennifer M. Lappe, 804-934-0314.

Biocore's International Journal of Criminal and Forensic Science: An exhilarating approach

Biocore's International Journal of Criminal and Forensic Science " will emphasize high-level research of clinical relevance and exhilarating approach." It "deals with clinical case reports, mysterious incidents happens in the Forensic and Criminal research group." One not-so-exhilarating incident is the publication of a previously published paper on "Fingerprint Geometric Analysis." (Compare the IJCFS paper with the JFCI paper.)* The paper is mysterious indeed, but it ends with the promise that "Be assured, this method will provide a successful outcome!"

Biocore has been labelled a predatory publisher and conference organizer. This journal has no editor-in-chief named, but it lists an editorial with the following members as of 5/16/18:
Dobbert Duane, Professor, Division of Justice Studies, American College of Forensic Examiners International

Umesh Prasad's UK Education Consultancy Services

UK Consultancy Services publishes several journals of broad scope and runs conferences in Switzerland through a "division" named "World Conferences." The journals include
⊘ European Journal of Law and Management (EJLM)
⊘ European Journal of Medicine and Dentistry (EJMD)
⊘ European Journal of Sciences (EJS)
⊘ European Journal of Social Sciences (EJSS)
⊘ Scientific European (SCIEU)
  • The EJLM website states (5/15/18) that its "editorial board comprises of people from varied scholarly areas of law and management who are renowned in their own field and come from diverse geographies and backgrounds." No names are provided, but the editor-in-chief is Umesh Prasad. As befits a journal with no editors, there are no articles listed on the website for this "monthly" journal.
  • Likewise, EJMD's "editorial board comprises of people from varied scientific areas of medicine and dentistry who are renowned in their own field and come from diverse geographies and backgrounds." None are identified. The editor-in-chief is the peripatetic Umesh Prasad. Even though the journal has no content, you can subscribe to it. 
  • EJS also "comprises of people from varied academic areas of sciences who are renowned in their own fields and come from diverse geographies and backgrounds" -- not one of whom is identified. A Prof. (Dr.) Ravi Prakash is editor-in-chief. The one issue to date of this "European Journal" has five articles -- all from India. Neither the website nor the issue provides an affiliation for Prof. (Dr.) Prakash, but the Ravi Prakash who is a co-author of an article in it is with India's Amity University in Uttar Pradesh. The issue states that the journal's founder is Umesh Prasad.
  • The European Journal of Social Sciences (EJSS) should not be confused with the more firmly established European Journal of Social Sciences (Revue Europeennes des Sciences Sociales). The latter has managed to generate 58 volumes since its inception 13 years ago. Founder Umesh Prasad's upstart has no named editorial board (but never fear, it "comprises of people from varied academic areas of social sciences who are renowned in their own fields and come from diverse geographies and backgrounds"). It has another Amity University editor-in-chief, Prof (Dr) Nirupama Prakash (Amity International Business School, Amity, University, Noida, India). It has one issue to date with two authors outside of India and Sri Lanka: Maria Anita Stefanelli, Universit├á Roma Tre, and Barbara Wejnert, SUNY (Buffalo).
  • SCIEU is "happy and proud to embark on the eternal journey to bring scientific advances to the living rooms of the people across the world!"The name of the article on the cover of the first issue (I declined to pay for access to the article itself) was "Editing Gene to Prevent Inheritable Disease."
Although press releases about UK Consultancy's journals describe them as open access, the FAQs on their websites indicate otherwise. They state that readers must register and that only "[a]s promotional offer, currently articles and the issues are available free of cost to all subscribers. ... However, this promotional offer can be withdrawn by the management at any time without prior notice."

The founder of these journals "hails from Ghorasahan village (East Champaran, Bihar (India)." A British national, he is the sole registered officer and the only person "of significant control" of UK Consultancy Services. It is hard to know what doctoral degree he holds. The company registration gives his occupation as "Director" and date of birth as May 1965.

All the organizations have the same address: 55 Smithy Lane, Lower Kingswood, Tadworth, England, KT20 6UA. It is the site of a three-bedroom, semi-detached residence. And a busy place it must be. In addition to UK Consultancy Services and its many divisions, the Centre for Advanced Dental Care Limited is there. Its director (who resigned last month) was Neelam Umesh Prasad, a dentist born March 1976. The other shareholder and director is, you guessed it, Umesh Prasad.

In addition, the residence houses UK-India Centre Ltd, yet another company incorporated (on 17 April 2018) and run by one director -- Umesh Prasad. The company's classifications are "publishing of newspapers," "activities of conference organisers," and "publishing of learned journals."

UPDATE (5/16/18): Umesh Prasad kindly provided a comment expressing disappointment in the "tone and presentation" of the information given above. He wrote that he comes "from clinical and academic background"; that he "recently quit the academia and took a plunge in journal sector to make a change"; and that the "business is a start-up, it’s a very new and things are still in flux taking shape – for example, boards are being reconstituted, websites being updated etc." Potential contributors to his journals are advised to read Mr. (or perhaps it it is Dr.) Prasad's full comment and to keep an eye out for improvements.

Vandeplas Publishing

I am not suggesting that Vanderplas Publishing is a scammer or a predatory publisher. Its publications include books by perfectly reputable authors. But there are a number of question marks:
  • It periodically solicits me in separate mailings to multiple email addresses.
  • A book has this review from Judge Alex Kozinzki (ret.): "If you’re holding this book in your hands – as you no doubt must be – just start turning pages and get ready for a treat.” That sounds good, but, hey, it it is an eBook. Still, at $9.95, the price is right.
  • The office address is one of those provided by Regus, a company that supplies "virtual offices" and "will receive and sign for mail and packages." It advertises a "professional company image without the cost of a physical office." However, it also leases spared space and rooms.
  • Buzzfile, a company database, estimates only "$114,590 in annual revenues" and "approximately 2 people at this [Lake Mary, Florida] location." I do not know how accurate these estimates are.
