Predatory journal has firm grip on universities in Ottawa and Canada

Scientists from the University of Ottawa, the Ottawa Hospital and other renowned institutions across Canada have been publishing their findings in fake science journals, spoiling the work despite years of warnings. One veteran science publisher warns all the work that produced these studies “is just thrown away.” Until recently, the scope of the problem of “predatory” journals has been hard to measure. Now, a known name in the fake publishing field, OMICS International of India, has enhanced the search engine for 700 journals. As a result, we found hundreds of Canadian scientists publishing recently with the Indian firm — the same company that has accepted the newspaper’s analysis of how pigs fly.
