Email to Central European Journal of Engineering

I sent this just seconds ago. One email bounced as undeliverable; the rest were delivered successfully.

To Editor-in-Chief Prof. Ahmed K. Noor, Managing Editor Anna Kowalska, and the Editorial Advisory Board of the Versita publication Central European Journal of Engineering (CEJE):

A member of the Editorial Advisory Board of CEJE, Prof. Ji-Huan He of Donghua University in Shanghai, is guilty of academic misconduct.

J-H He is notorious for gaming the impact factor of the International Journal of Nonlinear Science and Numerical Simulation (IJNSNS) of which he is Editor-in-Chief.

He is at the center of a scandal in China for appropriating without attribution the work of Dr. Shijun Liao (homotopy analysis method or HAM), renaming it (homotopy perturbation method or HPM), and calling it his own. His work is not only unoriginal, it is of poor quality. Besides the previous link, see Francisco M. Fernandez on Ji-Huan He in this regard. Also see Three cheers for Francisco M. Fernandez!

Most shocking is J-H He's close association with the infamous and belligerently litigious crackpot Mohamed El Naschie. J-H He calls El Naschie "one of this century's greatest scientists since Newton and Einstein" and says "El Naschie's theory will certainly lead to a Nobel Prize".

Appropriately, J-H He has been fired from editorial positions at Chaos, Solitons and Fractals (CSF), the Arab Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences (AJMMS), Computers and Mathematics with Applications (CMA), and Mathematical Problems in Engineering (MPE).

Prof. Noor, if you are aware of these facts and still think J-H He deserves a place on the Editorial Advisory Board of CEJE, you can make that choice, but your reputation and that of your journal are at risk. We have done our best to warn you. Members of the Editorial Advisory Board, we urge you to ask Prof. Noor to do the right thing and remove Prof. He from his Advisory Board position. Your reputations are also at risk.

Best regards,

Jason of El Naschie Watch

  1. The great man's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Friday, June 11. Obama White. Arabic or English.

    El Naschie expects the new British Prime Minister, David Cameron, to be a white Obama, and to be wise and rational, unlike his hated predecessors Gordon Brown and Tony Blair.

  2. There is very interesting piece for El naschie can be found on this
    It is an interview in Almasery Alyoum

    It is an interview in 2008

    * تلقيت دعوة للمشاركة في تطوير البرنامج النووي الإيراني.. لماذا اعتذرت عنها؟
    The journalist ask

    You have been invited to share in Iranian nuclear program ... You apologized for that why.

    أكثر من مرة جاءتني دعوات وأنا أذكر أني قلت لهم إنني «سني»، فقالوا لي عارفين، لكني لم أوافق واعتذرت

    The great man reply
    They invited me many times and as I remember I told them I'm old, but they told me we know but at the end I didn't accept and apologized.

    * لكن هل لك تلاميذ في إيران؟
    The journalist ask
    Have you students in Iran

    كثيرون وأتمني أن تنتهي الأزمة مع الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية
    The great replied
    I have a lot and I wish their crisis with USA come to an end.

    It was good for Iran that that the great man didn't share in The Iranian nuclear program. You could imagine what is the hill if El naschie used his E-infinity theory in developing the nuclear program.

  3. Dr. Kowalska, the Managing Editor for CEJE thanked me, asked for more information, and told me CEJE is looking into the matter.
