Global Press Hub "facilitates the research"

"Global Press Hub is" -- wait for it -- "a global publishing company that publishes" -- wait for it -- "in science, technical and medical (STM)" -- stop waiting -- the sentence on the About Us page ends there. This Indian company lists ten journals, mostly named "Asian Journal of ... ."

The exceptional "Asian Basic and Applied Research Journal aims to publish high-quality papers in all areas of ‘research’." Do the internal quotation marks mean that even the editors (if there are any -- none are named on the journal's website) have their doubts? The webpage sports a 1981 copyright (mistyped as @) even though the first issue did not appear until 2019.

The Hub's webpages are devoid of information on its officers and employees. The office in Ireland (if there is one) has an address and a fax number. No telephone number.

Institute for Promoting Research & Policy Develop (IPRPD) follows a unique set of culture of togetherness

The Institute for Promoting Research & Policy Development (IPRPD) "follows a unique set of culture of togetherness." It shares "ideology" with "spectators." Its "primary purpose is to distribute the knowledge of the most recent researches and breakthroughs among 'Collins' who have severe quest of learning and gather knowledge." Through its (two) journals, "connoisseurs altogether discover answers to the never-ending questions."

Its peer review is expeditious: "Each submission undergoes a detailed but rapid review by our respected reviewers. The review process will be completed expectedly within 5-7 days." Such alacrity has few peers.

Initially (the founding date was 1/1/2019), "IPRPD’s activities were based in Bangladesh and India only but later its possibilities have been extended to the world at large through its U.S. International Center."

Mathews Journal of Forensic Research Charges for Wastage of Precious Resources

Mathews Open Access Journals About Us page includes such putative sentences as "So that we can rejoice the miraculous outcomes of the researches done by our passionate researchers, professors, young and energetic scholars." The real miracle may be to get authors to pay "[t]he processing charges for a single manuscript [of] 1539 USD" and the "withdrawal charges" for "wastage of precious resources including editors, reviewers, and the editorial staff."

The first spam arrived in March 2018, for the Mathews Journal of Forensic Research. The journal website falsely claims to publish bimonthly and to release one volume per year. In November 2020, Mathews still advertises papers from issue 1 in 2018 as its only "recent articles." It has a picture of an issue for "volume 2" (dated 2019), but if it has any content, I cannot find it.

The editorial board does not include an editor-in-chief. The only US member is said to be Evan T. Keller, a professor of urology and pathology at the University of Michigan medical school, who works on prostate cancer bone metastasis and other topics apparently unrelated to forensic science research.
