In any event, the revenue does not seem to be coming from its journals, which are just coming into existence. I looked into the first journal listed on the website, the Journal of Anesthesiology Study and Treatment. It has no editor-in-chief and no issues out yet, but it "publishes papers from all the fields of Anesthesiology Study and Treatment [with] issues for every four months." It "accepts all kinds of manuscripts like Original Research Articles ... ."
One of the editorial board members, John F. Bebawy, of Northwestern University, is a favorite of flaky journals. He is listed as the editor-in-chief of an OMICS journal and a board member with journals at Allied Academies, Annex Publishers, Applis Publishers, ARC, Austin Publishing Group, Chembio Publishers, Clinics in Oncology, Gavin Publishers, Heighten Science, Kosmos Publishers, Lupine Journals, Madridge Publishers, Medwin Publishers, ONOMY Science, Open Access Pub, Openventio, ProClinS, Pubtexto, Pulsus Group, Remedy Publications, SciRes Literature, SciTechnol, SeriesScience International, SOAOJ, Unique Pub International, Zygoscient, and lots more. I figure that no one, no matter how desirous of a lengthy C.V., would sign up with so many journals. If so, the list is evidence of fraudulent practices on the part of at least some of them.
OSP's About Us page has the flowery phrases and ESL constructions seen among its competitors. Its "primary aim is to raise the bar for publishing quality research work and maintaining high standards in double blind peer review process, we assure you that. We will put our best efforts in maintaining trust among scientific world with Ocimum Scientific Publishers."Raising the bar to publishing quality research may not achieve the desired "betterment of scientific world," but, hey, OSP is just starting.
