International Conference on Materials Science and Manufacturing: Spamming scientists to please join them
I don’t know why today is a special day for Chinese scientific spam. But it seems to be. See previous post. The domains are registered to the same entities. The address source is, as before, “anything in PubMed goes”. I don’t know whether I should just take their advice and unsubscirble.
(I’m really impressed that the copy-paste from Emacs, which looks all blank on my screen, actually includes the Chinese content. Now there’s probably a way to identify the spamtrap from there…)
International Journal of Advance in Medical Science: Hey, we’re just starting up and we figured we’d spam you.
A new publication from the Science and Engineering Publishing Company, the International Journal of Advance in Medical Science is about to be started. They don’t even know who will be its EIC and what the ISSN numbers are (all TBD on their website). Nonetheless, even though they don’t half exist yet, they figured they’d spread the good news by spamming. There is no indication of address source, but my wild guess is “anybody who’s ever published anything that is available through PubMed goes”, no matter how old it may be. The sending domain is registered via a Chinese registrar to a Chinese registrant, the spam-advertised domain likewise, the sending IP is in China, but the Science and Engineering Publishing Company claims to reside at 7800 State Road 46 E, PO Box 551, Riley, Indiana, 47871, United States.
