PREDATORY JOURNALS AND PUBLISHERS MODIFY THEIR TRENDS

Predatory journals and publishers modify their trends,

Advanced Journal of Medical Emergency- A living model

From the date addressed by Jeffery Beall (dating back to 2008), predators unceasingly revolute their trends, vanish from time to time, recruit in another scheme. Heretofore, it was illustrious that journals belonging to the reputable universities were supposed to pursue international standards in their peer review process and it was absurd to malpractice publications, a trend might be questioned in the current era!

Advanced Journal of Emergency Medicine, a quarterly published journal distributed by Tehran University of Medical Science (TUMS) has been recently included in the Kscien lists of predatory journals and publishers, the predatory journal committee claim that they have enough evidences confirming the predatory nature of the journal.

Advanced Journal of Emergency medicine declared to their followers ‘’an international, open access, peer-reviewed, quarterly published journal with objective of improving the quality of care and knowledge in emergency medicine and related specialties. The journal publishes articles on critical care, disaster, trauma management, environmental diseases, toxicology, pediatric emergency medicine, emergency medical services, emergency ultrasound and other related topics’’

Kscien perceived that the managing editors bombarded authors in the developing countries with spam emails requesting manuscript submission, promising rapid and prompt reviewing.  In-depth analysis demonstrated that manuscripts submitted to this journal have never been subjected to the scrutiny of the experts, denying transparent peer review process as well.  For these reasons, Kscien encourage researchers not to waste their works with this pseudoscientific journal.
