Email to Dr. Abdel Rahman Al-Tawaha of AENSI

I just sent this.

To Dr. Abdel Rahman Al-Tawaha, President and Founder of American-Eurasian Network for Scientific Information (AENSI) and to International Network for Scientific Information, (INSInet Publications) .

Dear Dr. Abdel Rahman Al-Tawaha,

It has come to our attention that the AENSI Advisory Board includes Dr. Ji-Huan He.

Allow me to advise you that listing Prof. Ji-Huan He makes your organization a tempting object of ridicule and butt of jokes.

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 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. Fernández on Ji-Huan He in this regard. Also see Three cheers for Francisco M. Fernández! and Another Fernández review of Ji-Huan He's papers.

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". But El Naschie is widely known to be a huckster.

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), Mathematical Problems in Engineering (MPE), and the International Journal of Information Sciences and Computer Engineering (IJISCE). He is a crackpot with a penchant for inserting himself onto editorial boards and similar prestigious-sounding groups to pad his CV.

For your own reputation, and the reputation of AENSI and the other Advisory Board members, you should take Ji-Huan He off the AENSI Advisory Board.

Don't take my word for all this. Conduct your own investigation.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Best regards,

Jason of El Naschie Watch

  1. El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Friday, June 18. Wicca Pekka! Arabic or English.

    El Naschie thinks the Internet is lawless, full of swearing, and disruptive of public order. Wikipedia gets modern history wrong, he says. He attaches particular opprobrium to Rational Wiki and bloggers who slander and assassinate the reputation of the innocent. (Rational Wiki heavily cites El Naschie Watch.)
