SciRes Literature Promises a "High prevalence of Publishing"

"SciRes Literature LLC. brings a genuine research to you all Journals rigorously relevant to the topics of Science." The company's website lists 57 online journals. I looked at one, the American Journal of Rare Disorders: Diagnosis & Therapy (AJRDDT), for a taste of what they are like. Three pages on an "Egyptian Case of Parry-Romberg Syndrome" comprise the entire American journal. No editor-in-chief is named, but with only two editors listed, maybe none is necessary. The two editors are said to be Mohamed Ateia (Clemson University, France), and Ken H. Young (The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, USA). As far as I know, Clemson University is in the United States, and a Mohamed Ateia there is a postdoc in the Department of Environmental Engineering and Earth Science. Ken H. Young is a professor in the Department of Hematopathology MD Anderson Cancer Center.

It offers to "extend [my] potency to all over the world."

    The list of staff members is not entirely plausible.
