Bogus Conferences - The obvious and less obvious

July 2017

Sharing this article on identifying "bogus" conferences from the journal of Science and Engineering Ethics - Mary



The main objective of the present paper is to introduce some features of fake/bogus conferences and some viable approaches to differentiate them from the real ones. These fake/bogus conferences introduce themselves as international conferences, which are multidisciplinary and indexed in major scientific digital libraries. Furthermore, most of the fake/bogus conference holders offer publishing the accepted papers in ISI journals and use other techniques in their advertisement e-mails.
