Warning: Predatory Publishers Gone Phishing

Reported today by Jeffrey Beall on the ScholarlyOA web site, a scam involving predatory open-access publishers posing as a distinguished publisher (e.g., Elsevier): http://scholarlyoa.com/2014/05/08/scholarly-publishing-phishing-attempts-noted/

“Phishing” is the practice of attempting to secure information by posing as a reputable entity. In this case, the “phishers” do not direct you to the legitimate web site of the publisher and they insist on conducting business via email.

Always check the official web site of a publisher and the official email of the editor. Typically, most journals will require that you register for a manuscript account on their web site and that you submit your material on such a system.
