What do AJBAS and Josef Fritzl have in common?

The embedded video is a hint.

Well, there's a running joke on the anarchic 4chan image board that Josef Fritzl is Australian.

While doing the rounds this morning I came upon M. Shafiee, S. Abbasbandy, T. Allahviranloo, Predictor-Corrector Method for Nonlinear Fuzzy Volterra Integral Equations, Australian Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences (AJBAS), 5(12): 2865-2874, 2011 which is embedded below for your amusement. The fact that El Naschie is heavily and prominently cited is what brought it to my attention, of course. It's amazing that in this day and age anyone still cites him without irony or humor, but there you go.

It's too bad Mohamed El Naschie, to whom the Nobel Prize "lost its way" because he is Muslim, named Mohamed, and carries an Egyptian passport, doesn't comment on El Naschie Watch. Because it would be amusing to be called a racist for observing that the list above includes Egypt 17 times, Iran 19 times, India 36 times, and Australia... erm... not even once.

UPDATE. The December 2011 issue includes a paper called Ethics and Spirituality In The New Relaxing, whose abstract begins

East of the problems that the West is undoubtedly the lack of spirituality and mysticism to achieve a calm face was blank. Serious gap in the eastern countries, especially Islamic countries can not feel. However,the cultural invasion of the capacity to take the fullest advantage. Sufism promoting new and trying in vain to draw axis human humans are Eastern. Currently in Iran after Asho mysticism, the school has attracted the most supporters Akanke. Spirituality, along with ethics, to achieve peace, is almost always human. Every human mind which way he will not be limited to the material world just to see and not only will the rational analysis of the world. However, this case does not change, in a mystical way of peace, are thinking. Spirituality is not religion and it is all the time.

The entire paper, including the title, looks like it was run through Google Translate. Also, it has nothing to do with basic or applied science.

  1. They use "Australian" because then it sounds more legitimate. For good reasons (one being the subject of this blog), no one would take "Egyptian Journal of ..." as seriously. No one is fooled, however.

  2. Not to be confused with AJBAS(A for African) on Ji-Huan He's Master List. Still, it's worth to mention a similar funny journal from that list: BJAST(B for British) with no British editor and, apparently, of Indian origin. :-)

  3. You think those are funny? How about the Antarctica Journal of Mathematics ? In comparison to that one, Ji-Huan He's Master List looks rather respectable...

  4. Ha ha, Anonymous: good one. But, at least, the "penguin" journal has an editor affiliated to an Australian University and it is (in this respect) more Australian than AJBAS. LOL

  5. This is in rather poor taste. (Not to defend AJBAS or El Naschie or anything.)

  6. 4chan is all about poor taste. It seemed perfect for this post though.

  7. Elnaschiewatch should prepare some comment report on the considered paper from AJBAS for highly impacted journal. Because now I see only here the high deegree personal envy.

  8. Which paper, Anonymous? The one praising the Great Man or the other one? LOL

  9. Anonymous, I don't understand what you're asking me to do, or who is supposed to be envious of whom. And I don't know anything about the Impact Factor of AJBAS. Please clarify.
