Shame for IEEE, Springer Verlag, ACM, AIP, WorldScientific, Taylor and Francis, Elsevier

For more than 8 years our blog has identified that IEEE, Springer Verlag, ACM, AIP (American Institute of Physics), WorldScientific (Singapore), Taylor and Francis, Elsevier conferences are fake, bogus, scam, sham, mock and predatory. Now we have additional Proofs:


or google: IEEE 120 SCIgen Papers

The IEEE SCIgen Papers were 85 two years ago:
Several Blogs (included reported this. In 2014, these SCIgen papers in IEEE were 120.

Let''s start with the IEEE SCIGen Fake Papers of 2009. What's happened in 2009:
In 2009, we had received the following email from a girl that was working in IARIA's secretariat.

IEEE Computer Society Press sent it in January 17 (2009) to all the IEEE Sponsored, Co-Sponsored Conferences as well as to conferences
that publish their Proceedings with IEEE CS Press. It is impressive how many IEEE conferences are based on a review on the Abstract!.

date Sat, Jan 17, 2009 at 4:03 AMsubject Confidential: Important CPS Message Regarding Fraudulent Machine-Generated Paper Submissions

TO: CPS Clients FROM: Evan Butterfield, Director of Products and Services RE: Fraudulent Machine-Generated Paper Submissions (CONFIDENTIAL) DATE: 16 January 2009

The IEEE Computer Society (CS) has evidence that multiple (IEEE) conferences are receiving machine-generated papers. In two cases, conferences have actually accepted an obviously fraudulent submission. This is a serious issue that threatens the credibility of your conference, the quality of the digital library, and the reputation of both the IEEE and CS. It requires your immediate attention. Please take this opportunity to ensure that your peer review processes are being followed, and adapt to any new requirements that may be communicated by the IEEE or the Computer Society. No conference published by CPS should rely on an abstract review. It is very important that you review carefully the full text of all papers submitted to your conference. If you have already accepted papers, your program committee should review the full text again. While CPS staff will be conducting random spot-checks of conference papers in the publishing queue, we are relying on you to authenticate the content of your proceedings. Any papers that were not actually presented at your conference need to be brought to our attention, and should receive close review. In known cases, the machine-generated origin is obvious from a reading of the first few paragraphs of the paper; the abstracts are human-generated and do not indicate the quality of the paper itself. In the past, papers have been submitted by “Herbert Schlangemann,” but be mindful that the perpetrator of this fraud will change the approach over time. In the event you discover any evidence of questionable content or behavior, please communicate that to us immediately along with an action plan for addressing the problem. Thank you for your help in maintaining the quality of our products.

Keywords: elephants, trunk, tusk, long-nose animals, trumpeting
This contribution deals with elephants, our most favourite animals. Among the
founders of the elephant science we wish to recall Aristotle, one of the greatest
minds of all times. The best introduction into the subject is starting by the words
on elephants given in his Historia animalium [1]:
‘‘Among animals the most easily tamed and the gentlest is the elephant. It can
be taught a number of tricks, the drift and meaning of which it understands; as,
for instance, it can be taught to kneel in presence of the king. It is very sensitive,
and possessed of an intelligence superior to that of other animals.’’
Our modest contribution is to extend some of the observations on psychology of
elephants to other long-nose animals."

Fake Journal Publishing Scam (this time not from IEEE but from

Fake Journal Publishing Scam Here is an interesting scam that I hadn't
seen before. Someone is sending out mail purportedly from the academic
publisher Elsevier soliciting professors to submit papers to vaguely
described journals. The scam is apparently that your paper gets
"accepted" and then you are asked to pay "processing fees", which go
to the scammers without any article ever appearing anywhere.
Then again, anyone who could be fooled by the ridiculous message below
probably deserves what they get.
