To Editor-in-Chief Prof. Yu-Jie Ren, Managing Editor Prof. Abdul-Majid Wazwaz, and all Honorary Editors, Associate Editors, and Editors of the International journal of computational mathematics and numerical simulation (IJCMNS):
Dear members of the Editorial Board of IJCMNS:
Two among you are disreputable. I refer to Prof. Ji-Huan He and Dr. M.S. El Naschie.
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. (A Chinese version of that article is also available: 中文 )
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. 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 IJCMNS's Honorary Editor, 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 complete crank.
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. Ren, if you are aware of these facts and still think Ji-Huan He amd M.S. El Naschie deserve places on the Editorial Board of IJCMNS, 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 hope you persuade Prof. Ren to do the right thing and remove Prof. He and Dr. El Naschie from their Editorial Board positions on IJCMNS. He and El Naschie are increasingly famous around the world for their academic mischief, and if you become known for taking them seriously, you will be a laughing stock.
