We received this comment from Shie-Yuan Wang, National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan

I did attend the IEEE Bogus Conference on Sensor Networks 2009 in New Zeland

The tracks that I attended were of shameless quality.

The conference was also of a garbage eventI did attend more than 10 sessions and not all, but several papers, were absolutely the worst junk that I have seen in my life

Also as Prof. J.Moran (IEEE fellow) claimed 3 years ago
" What is actually the IEEE Crappy Conferences?

The IEEE fake conferences that scam money out of academics using high registration fees,
accept everything rather than subjecting submissions to any sort of peer review
Try to google: IEEE Fake or IEEE Scam or IEEE Bogus"

the fake manuscript to The Open Information Science Journal (TOISCIJ) at the end of January of 2009

After the hundred of fake papers that several bogus IEEE conferences have published all over the world, we discovered another "good" case of fake journals.

An open access journal has agreed to publish a nonsensical article written by a computer program, claiming that the manuscript was peer reviewed and requesting that the "authors" pay $800 in "open access fees."

Philip Davis, a PhD student in scientific communications at Cornell University, and Kent Anderson, executive director of international business and product development at the New England Journal of Medicine, submitted the fake manuscript to The Open Information Science Journal (TOISCIJ) at the end of January of 2009

Davis generated the paper, which was titled "Deconstructing Access Points," using a computer program -- called SCIgen -- created at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He and Anderson signed the work using pseudonyms (David Phillips and Andrew Kent). The two listed the "Center for Research in Applied Phrenology" (CRAP) as their home institution on the paper, which featured fictitious tables, figures and references.

"I wanted to really see whether this article would be peer reviewed," said Davis. "[Our paper] has the look of an article, but it makes no sense."

Davis told The Scientist that he got the idea for this "little experiment" after receiving scores of spam emails soliciting article submissions and invitations to serve on editorial boards of open access journals from Bentham Science Publishers, TOISCIJ's publisher. According to its website, Bentham publishes "200 plus open access journals" that cover disciplines from bioinformatics and pharmacology to engineering and neuroscience. "One of the things that made Bentham catch our eye," Anderson said, "was that they were so aggressively soliciting manuscripts."

The two wrote about the incident today on the Scholarly Kitchen, the Society for Scholarly Publishing blog that they run.

Davis said that last week the journal notified him that it had accepted the manuscript, which contained absolutely meaningless statements typified by the first few lines of its introduction: "Compact symmetries and compilers have garnered tremendous interest from both futurists and biologists in the last several years. The flaw of this type of solution, however, is that DHTs can be made empathic, large-scale, and extensible. Along these same lines, the drawback of this type of approach, however, is that active networks and SMPs can agree to fix this riddle."

He received an email from Ms. Sana Mokarram, assistant manager of publication at Bentham, that the manuscript "has been accepted for publication after peer-reviewing process in TOISCIJ." But Davis said that he received no reviewer comments in reference to the sham manuscript.

"The publisher said that it went through peer review," Davis said. "That looks very suspect. [Bentham says] that they're a scientific publication that does peer review, but at least in one case they did not do peer review, and they said that they did."

I called Richard Morrissy, who's listed as the US contact for Bentham Science Publishers on the company's website, but he declined to answer my questions and instead directed me to his supervisor, Matthew Honan, who works in Bentham's France office. Honan does not have a phone number, according to Morrissy, and he did not reply to an email (which was CC'ed to Bentham's marketing team in Pakistan) by the time this article was posted.

Earlier this year, Davis submitted another fake SCIgen-generated manuscript to a Bentham journal, The Open Software Engineering Journal, and it was rejected after what appeared to be an actual peer review process.

Mokarram's acceptance email for the TOISCIJ article had a fee form attached, asking Davis to submit an $800 payment to a post office box in the SAIF Zone, a tax-free complex in the United Arab Emirates. Davis wrote back and retracted the manuscript. "We have discovered several errors in the manuscript which question both the validity of the study and the results," he wrote in an email to Mokarram.

Davis said that he considered scraping together the $800 to see if Bentham would actually publish the fake paper, but considered that taking the hoax further would be "unethical."

"I think that the point has been made," he said. "And, I mean, it's $800, and I'm a graduate student."

All joking aside, Davis and Andrews say the episode points out potentially serious flaws in the open-access, author-pay model being adopted by an increasing number of publishers. "What happens to be going on is that some publishers see this as a lucrative opportunity," Davis said. "This open access environment may set up the condition under which publishers could use the good will of academics and their institutions for profit motives."

Open access journals generally charge authors fees to publish research papers. For example, BioMed Central journals charge up to $2265 in "article processing fees," and publishing in the PloS family of journals costs authors between $1300 - $2850. With institutional libraries, including Cornell's, and granting institutions, such as the Wellcome Trust and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, offering to pay open access publication fees for faculty authors and grantees, the potential for abuse may be increasing. "It's almost an inevitability that you might have several publishers tempted to take advantage of this relatively easy money," said Anderson.

But open access advocate Peter Suber from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana, told The Scientist that the problem is not the open access business model, per se. "If it were intrinsically suspect, we would have to level that criticism at a much wider swath of subscription journals," many of which also charge page fees when manuscripts are accepted for publication, Suber said.

As for Bentham, Suber noted that "many questions about their business" have been circulating for more than a year. "There's a whole range of quality in open access journals," Suber said, "in the same way that there is a whole range of quality in subscription journals."

Correction (June 10): The original version of this story incorrectly gave Peter Suber's affiliation as Earlham University in Richland, Virginia. Suber is actually at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana. The Scientist regrets the error.

So, the road that IEEE organization opened with the fake, junk papers (put in the Google, please,
fake IEEE, or Bogus IEEE) is long!!!

The IARIA continuing its policy of absolutely non-reviewed articles and the IEEE publishes all the Proceedings with garbage papers of IARIA

We do not know anymore what to assume. The IARIA continuing its policy of absolutely non-reviewed articles and the IEEE publishes all the Proceedings with garbage papers of IARIA
The IARIA is a real disaster and a slap in the face of science.

Why doesn't IEEE stop to publish the IARIA proceedings? because of the commission of course!

We received the following email

Recently, many fake article were published in IEEE. This conference was the IEEE Conference on Sensors
IEEE SENSORS 2009 Conference 25-28 October
Canterbury 8013New Zealand

Unfortunately, my 3 papers were accepted without any review and now I found in the Proceedings some absolutely junk (SCIgen or almost SCIgen papers)

Web Spamming by IEEE

Web Spamming by IEEE

A recent email from Carl Willis mentions a practice that’s been annoying me lately: a particular form of ‘web spamming’ by academic publishers, sometimes called ‘cloaking’. The publishing company gives search engine crawlers access to full-text articles — but when you try to read these articles, typically clicking on a link to a PDF file, you get a ‘doorway page’ demanding a subscription or payment.

I wonder why we receive all this academic spam every day from IEEE.
Everyday, the IEEE spam attacks our computers.

Sometimes you’ll even be taken to an IEEE page that has nothing to do with the paper you thought you were about to see! That’s what infuriates me the most.

I don’t expect free articles from these IEEE guys, but it would at least be nice to see basic bibliographical information.

Really the IEEE , the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers
or better the Institute of Spam and Junk Conferences sends milions or billions of Spam Emails

The last one seems to have quit — but to see why they did it, check out their powerpoint presentation on this subject, courtesy of Carl Willis.

Do you know any particularly egregious examples of this practice in the world of academic publishing? Do you know of any serious attempts to stop them?

I wrote in another blog
that the IEEE “seems to have quit” web spamming

So, if you click in those IEEE spam emails
to view the PDF file that comes up on top of this Google search, you’ll see the IEEE is still ‘cloaking’. You’ll get a page that’s not the PDF file you bargained for!

Pierre Far who has a Ph.D. in bacterial genetics, and now works as a search engine marketer
sent to the IEEE a computer auto- generated paper (from SCIgen) and was accepted without review, just because Dr. Far was a victim of IEEE academic spam.

Needless to say many other fake papers that have been accepted in IEEE bogus conferences recently.

Also, aout two years ago I started getting peculiar messages from IEEE about conferences I’d never heard of. They all follow a standard form, with a subject like “inviting you to participate in BLAH-2009.”

Some IEEE Spam Emails address me as “potential speaker,” some “Dr. Cameron A. Marlow,” and some simple “Dr. Marlow.” This isn’t all that surprising, given that lots of legitimate emails I get from academic institutions refer to me as a Dr. (it’s much more offensive not to refer to a Ph.D. as Dr. than it is to inflate the ego of a mere student).
An increase in IEEE conference spam

The surprising thing about these IEEE Spam emails is that they’ve been increasing in frequency pretty regularly.

They have moved from the space of “oversized conference list” to legitimate spam. In some cases I’ve gotten emailed multiple times about the same IEEE garbage conference, and for a subject that’s about as close to my research as I am to finishing my course in Scientology.

So who are these people? Given the regular structure of the emails, I assume that they’re being sent out from one master list. Some arrive from IEEE directly which appears to be a collection of losely-related conferences, and others from IEEE co-operating conferences.

How big is this IEEE spam network?

Did I get randomly added to some master list, or are they spidering for academic’s email addresses?

Has anyone actually gone to one of these ridiculus IEE conferences? As with most spam of IEEE, lots of questions, few answers.

SCIgen in WIkipedia

List of works with noticeable acceptance

Rob Thomas: Rooter: A Methodology for the Typical Unification of Access Points and Redundancy, 2005 for WMSCI (see above)

Mathias Uslar's paper was accepted to the IPSI-BG conference[4].
Professor Genco Gülan published a paper in the 3rd International Symposium of Interactive Media Design[5].
Students at Iran's Sharif University of Technology published a paper in the Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computation (which is published by Elsevier)[6]. The students wrote under the false, non-Persian surname, MosallahNejad, which translates literally as: "from an Armed Breed". The paper was subsequently removed when the publishers were informed that it was a joke paper[7].
Conferences of Wessex Institute of Technology [8].
It seems also that the IEEE IARIA Conference accepted another bogus paper: http://iaria-highsci.blogspot.com/2008/12/we-have-letter-of-acceptance-fantastic.html
A paper titled "Towards the Simulation of E-Commerce" by Herbert Schlangemann got accepted as a reviewed paper at the "International Conference on Computer Science and Software Engineering" (CSSE) and was briefly in the IEEE Xplore Database [9]. The author is named after the Swedish short film Der Schlangemann. Furthermore the author was invited to be a session chair during the conference[10].Read the official Herbert Schlangemann Blog for details[11]. The official review comment: "This paper presents cooperative technology and classical Communication. In conclusion, the result shows that though the much-touted amphibious algorithm for the refinement of randomized algorithms is impossible, the well-known client-server algorithm for the analysis of voice-over- IP by Kumar and Raman runs in _(n) time. The authors can clearly identify important features of visualization of DHTs and analyze them insightfully. It is recommended that the authors should develop ideas more cogently, organizes them more logically, and connects them with clear transitions"
In 2009, the same incident happened and Herbert Schlangemann's latest fake paper "PlusPug: A Methodology for the Improvement of Local-Area Networks" has been accepted for oral presentation at another international computer science conference [12]. Recently, Denis Baggi, Chairman, IEEE CS confessed, according to a comment on the Schlangemann Blog, that "Selection criteria such a refereeing etc. are meaningless", probably means that IEEE has accepted the unreliability and bogusity of its conferences. Denis Baggi also adds: "Articles should be written only if someone has something to tell others, in which case the validity of the paper is obvious".

Criticism concerning publishers
Recently, many fake papers appeared in several IEEE conferences, because the IEEE grants its name and its logo to many local organizers who supposedly do not conduct a thorough review process. It is being argued that such conferences only exist to make money out of researchers that are looking for a simple way to publish their work, in particular publishers like IARIA, http://www.iaria.org, HIGHSCI http://www.highsci.org and SRP http://www.scirp.org appear questionable. As seen from their web sites, IARIA, HIGHSCI and SRP use the name of IEEE and the IEEE publishing services, thus attracting numerous papers. Some people to test some conference go further and sent the paper "A Statistical Method For Women That Can Help Our Sexual Education" in the IEEE Conference organized by IARIA. This paper receive automatical acceptance within a few hours with simultaneus "command" of direct payment. Unfortunately this paper was not published because the authors did not pay the registration fee. However the letter of acceptance is published on the web and anybody can check it: http://iaria-highsci.blogspot.com/, http://scamieee.blogspot.com/


Other protest blogs are:
Official Protests[13].

Put in Google: "Software-Generated Paper Accepted At IEEE Conference"

Just researched this a bit more - what on earth was IEEE thinking when it organized more numerous bogus conference per year?

Googling the web , we found the following :

Put in Google: "Software-Generated Paper Accepted At IEEE Conference"

Now we have found more than 20 fake papers in IEEE Conferences.
One fake paper was accepted in an IEEE Conference in February 2008 and another 20 days ago.
