El Naschie Watch flexes its muscles

Yesterday we wrote to OAMJ. Today we got an email from the managing editor:


Dear Mr. Jason,

Thanks for informing about the reputation of Ji-Huan He. We will do the needful.

Best regards
ILYAs

M. Ilyas Khan (Mr.)
Managing Editor- Bentham OPEN
Bentham Science


At this moment if you compare the cached and the current Editorial Advisory Board you will find that a name has gone missing, right between Han and Henrion.

OAMJ is number 48 on our Master list of Ji-Huan He's editorial positions, which has been updated to reflect this startlingly prompt smackdown.

  1. I am bit late on this, but it's relevant:

    "Bentham Open's emergence into scholarly publishing in 2007 has served mainly as a venue to publish research of questionable quality. The site has exploited the Open Access model for its own financial motives and flooded scholarly communication with a flurry of low quality and questionable research. By linking to sites such as Bentham Open, libraries are diluting scholarly research and making it more difficult for scholars to sort through the abundance of journal articles available."

  2. It's never too late to comment.

    Your URL must have required a cookie or evanescent browser state because I get a "Session Time Out" error. But the text you quote can be sourced here and here (PDF).

    Others have derided Bentham Open on this blog.
