Email to Computational Technologies

I just sent this. The email address list is clearly quite stale, however.

To Editor-in-Chief Yurii I. Shokin, Managing Editor Igor A. Pestunov, and all the other members of the Editorial Board of Computational Technologies (CT):

A member of the Editorial Board of CT, 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).

Academician Shokin, if you are aware of these facts and still think J-H He deserves a place on the Editorial Board of CT, 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 Board, we urge you to ask Academician Shokin to do the right thing and remove Prof. He from his Editorial Board position on CT. Your reputations are also at risk.

Best regards,

Jason of El Naschie Watch
