    Fake Journals: Their Features and Some Viable Ways to Distinguishing Them.Mohammad Hemmat Esfe, Somchai Wongwises, Amin Asadi & Mohammad Akbari - 2015 - Science and Engineering Ethics 21 (4):821-824.
    In this paper, we aim to discuss the fake journals and their advertisement and publication techniques. These types of journals mostly start and continue their activities by using the name of some indexed journals and establishing fake websites. The fake journals and publishers, while asking the authors for a significant amount of money for publishing their papers, have no peer-review process, publish the papers without any revision on the fake sites, and put the scientific reputation and prestige of the researchers (...)

    Fake/Bogus Conferences: Their Features and Some Subtle Ways to Differentiate Them from Real Ones.Amin Asadi, Nader Rahbar, Mohammad Javad Rezvani & Fahime Asadi - 2018 - Science and Engineering Ethics 24 (2):779-784.
    The main objective of the present paper is to introduce some features of fake/bogus conferences and some viable approaches to differentiate them from the real ones. These fake/bogus conferences introduce themselves as international conferences, which are multidisciplinary and indexed in major scientific digital libraries. Furthermore, most of the fake/bogus conference holders offer publishing the accepted papers in ISI journals and use other techniques in their advertisement e-mails.

    Online-Based Approaches to Identify Real Journals and Publishers from Hijacked Ones.Amin Asadi, Nader Rahbar, Meisam Asadi, Fahime Asadi & Kokab Khalili Paji - 2017 - Science and Engineering Ethics 23 (1):305-308.
    The aim of the present paper was to introduce some online-based approaches to evaluate scientific journals and publishers and to differentiate them from the hijacked ones, regardless of their disciplines. With the advent of open-access journals, many hijacked journals and publishers have deceitfully assumed the mantle of authenticity in order to take advantage of researchers and students. Although these hijacked journals and publishers can be identified through checking their advertisement techniques and their websites, these ways do not always result in (...)

    In recent years, predatory journals, conferences, and publishers have turned to an inevitable threat in scientific publishing. Researchers, regardless of their disciplines, should be aware of these predators and have to be able to recognize them. The main aim of the present paper is to raise awareness about the growing menace of fake invitations to speak at a scientific conference organized by predatory organizers and publishers. Some subtle signs to identify the fake invitations from the authentic ones have been introduced (...)

    Mandatory and Self-citation; Types, Reasons, Their Benefits and Disadvantages.Mohammad Hemmat Esfe, Somchai Wongwises, Amin Asadi, Arash Karimipour & Mohammad Akbari - 2015 - Science and Engineering Ethics 21 (6):1581-1585.
    This paper defines and discusses two important types of citations, self-citation and mandatory citation, in engineering journals. Citation can be classified in three categories: optional; semi-mandatory; and mandatory. There are some negative and positive impacts for the authors’ paper and journals’ reputation if mandatory citation of a paper or set of papers is requested. These effects can be different based on the recommended papers for citing in the new research. Mandatory citation has various types discussed in this paper. Self-citation and (...)
