7月にICRIIS で発表し、abstractが公開されて以来、「ジャーナルに掲載しようよ」というメールがやたら届くようになった。一見「お？！」と嬉しい気持ちになったかと思えば、よくよく見ると返信用のメールにhotmalが使われていたり、David Publishing と David Publisher 両方が入っていていかにも怪しかったり。そもそも、同じ発表に対して、全然分野が違うジャーナルかつ同じ出版社からオファーとか、怪しさ満載である。
"Predatory Journal" で検索すると、Beall氏のリストをはじめとして、いわゆる金もうけのための「ハゲタカ出版」の出版社や雑誌名が出てくるが、まさに当てはまるところだった。
しかし、知らなきゃ返事してしまうだろうな。特に博士課程在籍中だったり、業績が必要だったりするときは。ご参考までに、David Publishing (publisher) からそれぞれ届いたメールを載せておこう。
