But does that necessarily mean it's a bad journal? Well, the publishers appear on this list of "predatory publishers".
The gold (author pays) open-access model has given rise to a great many new online publishers. Many of these publishers are corrupt and exist only to make money off the author processing charges that are billed to authors upon acceptance of their scientific manuscripts. [...] we recommend that researchers, scientists, and academics avoid doing business with these publishers and journals. Scholars should avoid sending article submissions to them, serving on their editorial boards, reviewing papers for them, or advertising in them. Also, tenure and promotion committees should give extra scrutiny to articles published in these journals, for many of them include instances of research misconduct.
In fact, when I typed the company name (Scientific Research Publishers) into google, it suggested the word predatory as an autofill!
The thing that amuses me the most is the thought of this dufuss being ripped off and preyed upon by a "predatory publisher".
We should recommend them to the ID/Creationist crowd. Maybe they could even become the "in-house" publishers for ICR and the Discovery Institute.
