Jeffrey Beall
Imposter and academic criminal 
Potential, possible and probable predatory blogger

 

March 10, 15

Jeffrey Beall is an impostor and academic criminal - Dr. Clement
 
I recently forwarded an email to him from this Publisher:  xyz

Actually this publisher is spamming me everyday and promise rapid publication of my papers to its conferences and journals. Also, instead of conference proceedings, they push all the papers from the conferences to their journals which is unacceptable.

I explained to Jeffrey Beall that according his own criteria, a journal that can publish everything from every science and every      scientific field, with a publication fee 500 - 1000 USD must be predatory, because for the same reason, Jeffrey Beall classified as predatory publishers many other honest and legitimate publishers.

I told to Jeffrey Beall

"The problem is that they promise automatic publication in their journals, if you attend their conference. See this SPAM So, I believe that this: XYZ is a predatory publisher because of their aggressive spam and because of their promises for automatic publication of whatever to receive to their Journals"

I sent real proofs to Jeffrey Beall
But Jeffrey Beall refused and still refuses to add  xyz to his black list.

The reply of  Jeffrey Beall was funny and ridiculous.

"I understand. I think this case is borderline. I would like to monitor this  publisher some more before making any decision. Please send me any additional information if possible.
Thank you,

Jeffrey Beall"


Jeffrey Beall obviously received his kickback from the  xyz and did not classify them as Predatory.

What a Shame Jeffrey Beall.  To destroy honest and legitimate publishers and to promote vanity press for revenue in your offshore accounts!

Dr. Clement,

 

I just looked at the xyz. I find the sound annoying, but I don't want to add this journal to my list at this time either. I found some small problems, but not enough to classify it as predatory.

 

If you think I am mistaken, please let me know.

 

Thanks,

 

Jeffrey Beall
