Spam Journals. Bogus Journals. Junk Journals. Fake Journals: Bentham, Hindawi, InTech

We will talk not for IEEE fake conferences and junk meetings today, but for the
fake Journals of 3 Publishers: Bentham, Hindawi, InTech

As you can see the use ti send frequent unsolicited emails about their journals
The strategy seems to be to mine reputable conference and journal papers for email addresses and then use them for targeted spam.

For example

More and More IEEE Fake Conferences in China

we read:

More and More IEEE Fake Conferences in China

A colleague was bragging that he had a paper accepted at an international IEEE conference in China. Since IEEE has often been found to support so-called bogus or fake conferences (ones that accept any paper, even those generated by SciGen) and since I was on vacation with internet access and time on my hands, I decided to have a look.
IEEE has a site that can be used to search for conferences, so I looked for conferences in Beijing in 2009. Amazing, there are 23 IEEE conferences this year in Beijing! Okay, China is a large country. I idly flicked through a few of them, when I realized that the contact person for an number of them was given as Prof. Mengqi Zhou.
More research turned him up as Chairman of the IEEE Beijing Section, and 10 of the 23 conferences listed him as the contact. Now I was really curious, so I spent a good bit of time researching the conferences. Some appear to be legitimate - they have a venue listed on their web page, they have a small range of topics listed, there is someone more or less serious-sounding as the contact.
But others are mighty strange indeed. There are dysfunctional web sites, no venues listed. And from October 16-18, 18-20, 21-23 there are three large conferences listed at the Beijing University of Posts and Telekommunications, with a fourth from 6-8 Nov. The contact for all four conferences is the same person, Weining Wang. Three of the four have identical registration prices and registration forms - only the dates and names of the conferences have been changed and are in a different font. The fourth one has a dysfunctional web page. Here is the data that I collected during my research:

They will not index the Proceedings at any index except their own data base! ALERT! 5 fake IEEE Conferences in Croatia

An IEEE Conference advertises 7 bogus IEEE Conferences in the same way that
a travel agency advertises its cruises

7 Bogus IEEE Conferences in Croatia
7 Junk IEEE Conferences in Croatia

All under the same URL

Call for SoftCOM'11 General Conference
Call for Symposium on Green Networking and Computing
Call for Symposium on RFID Technologies and Internet of Things
Call for Symposium on Environmental Electromagnetic Compatibility (EEMC)
Call for Symposium on Ad-Hoc and Sensor Networks
Call for Symposium on QoS in Wired and Wireless networks
Call for Workshop on ICT

What an Academic Crime!

Impressive is how they do cheat the academicians

General Chairman is Nikola Rozic, Dinko Begusic
University of Split, Croatia
a well known person for his academic frauds in Croatia
Be aware of this Criminal!

Another indication of the Bogusity is the Call For Papers
They have the ridiculous title Croatia is among the 20 cleanest countries in the world
Enjoy the IEEE Audacity and simultaneously the IEEE misery in the next few lines

The 19th International Conference on Software, Telecommunications and Computer Networks (SoftCOM 2011) will be held in the largest tourist regions of Dalmatia. Dalmatia is characterized by the highest number of sunny days that on some of the islands and along the deep southern coast number as many as 315 a year.

Croatia is among the 20 cleanest countries in the world
The American magazine Forbes has ranked Croatia as the 20th-cleanest country in the world with 84.6 points.
Forbes has published a list of the world's cleanest countries based on the Environmental Performance Index (EPI) set up by Columbia University's Center for International Earth Science Information Network and Yale University's Center for Environmental Law and Policy.

TripAdvisor has revealed the winners of its 2011 Travelers’ Choice Destinations awards, and city of Dubrovnik is in top 25 destinations in Europe.

Authors are invited to submit their high-quality papers representing original results in all areas of communications software, services and applications, telecommunications and computer networks.

Authors of the selected best papers will be invited to submit a revised and extended version of their manuscripts for possible publication in the Journal of Communications Software and Systems (JCOMSS).

Authors are invited to submit their high-quality papers representing original results in all areas of communication software, telecommunications and computer networks. Accepted papers will be published in the SoftCOM 2011 conference proceedings and in the IEEE Xplore.

They will not index the Proceedings at any Important and reputable index except their own data base (IEEE Explore) that has accepted and published over than 40 SCIgen papers. In fact, this is the mathematical proof for how fake and how miserable is this IEEE junk scheme.
