ISSM Warns of Possible Predatory Journal
Over the last few weeks, ISSM members have received emails soliciting submissions to possible "predatory journals." This journal's title is almost identical to our own flagship journal, The Journal of Sexual Medicine (JSM).
The aim of fake journals is not to publish high-quality research, but rather to place as many articles as possible online with as little effort as possible and in this way make maximum profit. Predatory publishing is a lucrative business, as evidenced by the rapidly increasing number of dubious publishers and magazines in recent years as well as the increasing number of other dubious offers such as fake conferences.
Despite the similarity of the journal title, we wish to stress that these emails are NOT referring to the official ISSM publications.
