Lev Lafayette: 'Advanced Computing': A International Journal of Plagiarism

Wed, 2017-04-05 17:05

Advanced Computing : An International Journal was a publication that I considering writing for. However it is almost certainly a predatory open-access journal, that seeks a "publication charge", without even performing the minimal standards of editorial checking.

I can just tolerate the fact that the most recent issue has numerous spelling and grammatical errors as the I believe that English is not the first language of the authors. It should have been caught by the editors, but we'll let that slide for a far greater crime - that of widespread plagiarism.

The fact that the editors clearly didn't even check for this is in inexcusable oversight.

I opened this correspondence to the editors in the hope that others will find it prior to submitting or even considering submission to the journal in question. I also hope the editors take the opportunity to dramatically improve their editorial standards.

The third and final day of the Light to Light Walk at Ben Boyd National Park. This was a shorter (8 kms) easier walk. A nice way to finish the journey.

Michael Still: Light to Light, Day Two

Our second day walking the Light to Light walk in Ben Boyd National Park. This second day was about 10 kms and was on easier terrain than the first day. That said, probably a little less scenic than the first day too.

Michael Still: Light to Light, Day One

Macarthur Scouts took a group of teenagers down to Ben Boyd National Park on the weekend to do the Light to Light walk. The first day was 14 kms through lovely undulating terrain. This was the hardest day of the walk, but very rewarding and I think we all had fun.
