Fake Web Sites Are Involved In Impersonating Scientific Journals

Fake Web Sites Are Involved In Impersonating Scientific Journals

Cyber criminals are stealing the identity of reputable
science journals by creating fake web sites and using
them to collect author fees, These fees disappear to
Armenia and other countries. They most commonly
target journals that lack dedicated websites of their
own. In some cases, such websites have collected
author fees of up to 500 dollars from authors for a
paper that never gets published.
