Here is his comment broken into five parts along with my response to each part:
I do not have any idea about El Naschie, since I do not know him but your words about Ji-Huan He is quite wrong. Why you are talking just about HPM? He introduced several methods in vibrations much easier than other methods available.
Maybe J-H He has done some good things. That doesn't justify the bad things. HPM is the only method of his that I've heard about. I've heard it's not good and not even his own, and you can read about that in this post, which gives further references, mostly to Chinese Web sites. But the main problem I have with J-H He is that he says El Naschie is a new Newton or Einstein and deserves a Nobel Prize. To understand how stupid that is, you must read Introduction to Mohamed El Naschie.
Maybe, from the Mathematics side, there is nothing in his methods, but it does not matter for engineers. These methods are very useful in vibrations and fluid mechanics, working much better than other available methods. Hundreds researchers around the world are working with his methods.
Engineering is a worthy discipline and if what you say is true then you make a good point.
About his journal, the increased impact factor is quite reasonable. He has introduced more than 30 methods recently and these methods were introduced for first time in his journal. So it has many citations since many researchers are working on these methods!
No, it's not reasonable. It's unreasonable by orders of magnitude. Ji-Huan He writes absurd papers about such things as the fractal dimension of wool that nobody could take seriously. The graphic in this post shows the title of one of the most idiotic papers ever written. J-H He's journal IJNSNS is highly rated because of self-citation and cross-citation with El Naschie's erstwhile journal CSF. This is described in Arnold's SIAM News article, which you must have read, since you mention SIAM further down.
It seems that your issues are supported with Professor Liao. His scientific rank is much lower that J.H.He. I know Liao completely and your words are very similar to him.
I have never met or communicated with Prof. Liao and know nothing first-hand about him or his work. My understanding is that J-H He was a student of Liao. There is a lot of information here (Chinese or English).
I believe that you are angry about J.H.He because SIAM journals with many years experiences, have weak citations! and it is the main reason ! J.H.He is in editorial board of Journal of Computers Mathematics With Applications under management of Professor Rodin! and this makes clear everything!
I have no association with SIAM, but the idea that SIAM's journals could be envious of IJNSNS is outlandish. Thank you for pointing out that Ji-Huan He is an editor of Computers & Mathematics with Applications (CMA). Rodin should probably be warned that this puts CMA's reputation at risk.
I'm sorry to have to say this, but if you are Ji-Huan He's student, you should probably find a new mentor.
