Somewhere in the City of Lodhran, there is a headquarter of SAVAP International that publishes Academic Research International (ARInt.), A substandard scholarly publishing company
I have received multiple email invites from them to submit my articles for their new journal. Although i am a student and it is really challenging task to write for a journal. But they Guarantee Publishing your articles online.
These publishers have the same boss, as another substandard publisher Leena & Luna International that is pretending to be publishing from Japan.
Note the guys on Leea-Luna, Mr. Ashraf and Mr. Akbar are same as in the ARInt.'s picture here:
Althoug both Websites do not mention the detailed CV of Dr. Muhammad Ashraf Malik,PhD, Founder Chairman of SAVAP International, after one google search i found his CV here:
Sadly, The Chairman is a graduate of Islamia University Bahawalpur and has many teachers from that university on his journal's editorial board.
Although his picture is not big enough on the SAVAP Page, another search can give the higher resoulution picture of the Founder Chairman, Here.
They Charge huge amount (105 USD) for online publicationg of a manuscript and additional 30 USD for its hard copy. However, majority of their authors are either from all over Pakistan (Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar, etc) or from other developing countries.
Sadly, their journal is a Z category journal in HEC list because the organizers have manged to bring many professors, Deans and a couple of Rectors on editorial board probably with some monetary benefits. Because who does not want easy money and fame in Pakistan.
Shockingly, this oniline website of 'badly phrased letters' is good enough for some promotions and BPS appointment in the academic institutions on HEC criteria, although it is of no use outside world... So pay a few thousand to these 'Publishers' and become eligible overnight...yes overnight because they are hosting 'publications' online and open access.....
So beware of these frauds. Save your money and effort for some better work!
I paste some of my screen clippings from both websites SAVAP and LEENA-LUNA.
