Here is the only interesting part:
In a commentary on the ‘state of scholarly publishing’, Douglas Arnold, president of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics draws a damaging conclusion: ‘. . . common bibliometrics – such as the impact factor for journals and citation counts for authors – are easily manipulated’ (Siam News, 2009, 42, 1). He argues that ‘their use in ranking and judging should be curtailed’. Arnold’s concerns are based on cases of both editor and journal misconduct. He cites the case of the journals Chaos, Solitons and Fractals (Elsevier) and International Journal of Nonlinear Science and Numerical Simulation (Freund Publishing), in which the editors [note M.S. El Naschie and Ji-Huan He are unnamed] ‘publish copiously, not only in their own journals but also in each other’s, and they cite each other frequently’.
It is a shame that Arnold's latest paper is not mentioned; perhaps it appeared too late. But Balaram should have named the citation scammers as Arnold did. I am getting sick and tired of craven, gutless reporting that fails to name them.
Other gutless wonders:
