Some open-access journals that have been criticized for poor quality control provided the most rigorous peer review of all. For example, the flagship journal of the Public Library of Science, PLOS ONE, was the only journal that called attention to the paper's potential ethical problems, such as its lack of documentation about the treatment of animals used to generate cells for the experiment. The journal meticulously checked with the fictional authors that this and other prerequisites of a proper scientific study were met before sending it out for review. PLOS ONE rejected the paper 2 weeks later on the basis of its scientific quality.
The fictitious authors are affiliated with fictitious African institutions. I generated the authors, such as Ocorrafoo M. L. Cobange, by randomly permuting African first and last names harvested from online databases, and then randomly adding middle initials. For the affiliations, such as the Wassee Institute of Medicine, I randomly combined Swahili words and African names with generic institutional words and African capital cities. My hope was that using developing world authors and institutions would arouse less suspicion if a curious editor were to find nothing about them on the Internet.
I came across to your research paper titled "Constructing 5-configurations with chiral symmetry" and feel that your research is having a very good impact.
With a view to begin a long-term fruitful association with you, I invite you to submit your upcoming research articles / papers for publication in Global Journal of Research in Engineering (GJRE), an international double blind peer reviewed research journal.
This may be noted that due date of forthcoming issue GJRE is 15th October, 2013.
The process of publication is expected to be completed within three to five weeks. Our processes follow rigid quality control measures and comply with international standards in journal publishing.
The Global Journal of Researches in Engineering (GJRE) is an international journal for publishing research paper of computer science. Yielding in a true sense is the objective equally aims to encourage and provide international publication to researchers, scientists and engineers. We welcome original researches, articles, surveys and review papers from all over the world.
