Ce n'est pas la première fois que j'avertis sur ces pratiques, mais je reçois vraiement trop de sollicitations bizarres. Certains d'entre vous publient chez des prédateurs. Voici deux exemples de début mai 2013.
Ces 2 demandes viennent de Lifescience Global (Pakistan et Canada), et de OMICS group qui font partie des prédateurs. Parmi les prédateurs, il y a probablement Hindawi, surnommée The house of spam. Hindawi a une adresse au Caire (Egypte) et une adresse à New YorK. Hindawi est plus profitable que Elsevier. Demain (14 mai), je vous expose un cas intéressant de chirurgiens parisiens prestigieux qui n'ont pas hésité à publier chez Hindawi pour 300 $, et en plus pour dupliquer un bon travail. La motivation ? Augmenter les lignes sur un CV en trompant les lecteurs et en polluant la science……
