Manuscript Accepted! Title: "Get me off Your F*cking Mailing List"

 on

Scientists are under a lot of pressure to publish in order to advance their careers and science. Scam journals have popped up in recent years to attempt to prey on this immense stress. These journals often have plausibly legitimate titles like "International Journal of Bioassays" and spam researchers with invitations to publish work for a small fee.

After receiving one of these spam emails, Dr. Peter Vamplew of Federation University Australia’s School of Engineering and Information Technology submitted his groundbreaking research article entitled "Get me off Your Fucking Mailing List."
