What a coincidence, I specialize in contemporary research!

In this morning’s inbox:

American International Journal of Contemporary Research (AIJCR) is an open access, peer-reviewed and refereed multidisciplinary journal published by Center for Promoting Ideas (CPI), USA. The main objective of AIJCR is to provide an intellectual platform for the research community. AIJCR aims to promote contemporary research in business, humanities, social science, science and technology and become the leading journal in the world.

I wonder what areas of research are appropriate?

The journal publishes research papers in three broad specific fields as follows:

Business and Economics
Management, marketing, finance, economics, banking, accounting, human resources management, international business, hotel and tourism, entrepreneurship development, business ethics, development studies and so on.

Humanities and Social science
Anthropology, communication studies, corporate governance, criminology, cross-cultural studies, demography, education, ethics, geography, history, industrial relations, information science, international relations, law, linguistics, library science, media studies, methodology, philosophy, political science, population Studies, psychology, public administration, sociology, social welfare, linguistics, literature, paralegal, performing arts (music, theatre & dance), religious studies, visual arts, women studies.

Science and Technology
Astronomy and astrophysics, Chemistry, Earth and atmospheric sciences, Physics, Biology in general, Agriculture, Biophysics and biochemistry, Botany, Environmental Science, Forestry, Genetics, Horticulture, Husbandry, Neuroscience, Zoology, Computer science, Engineering, Robotics and Automation, Materials science, Mathematics, Mechanics, Statistics, Health Care & Public Health, Nutrition and Food Science, Pharmaceutical Sciences, and so on.

I don’t know which I like best, “broad specific fields” or the “and so on.”  Or maybe “women studies.”  Or maybe that they list “linguistics” twice.  I can’t choose, it’s all so spamalicious!

    Jeffrey Beall is on the case! He digs into the editor information, and scornfully points out the presence of a donate button!


    I have been spammed by the I-CRAP-AM 2014 conference, which doesn’t seem to
    be indulging in false advertising.

  2. Nick Addington says:

    I liked “paralegal” – a real hot area of contemporary research, along wih “TV/VCR repair.”

  3. I like their lofty goal of becoming the “leading journal in the world.”

  4. Shecky R says:

    I think there may be a misspelling involved… I believe they mean the American International Journal of Contemptuous Research (…just a hunch)

  5. Michael says:

    My research is ahead of its time. So I guess the journal is unsuitable for me. What a shame.

  6. Ø says:

    They forgot mathematics!

  7. Rachel Hollander says:

    Math is under science, but they really did forget literature!

  8. Tom Church says:

    Literature is on there too, after linguistics (but not after the first appearance of linguistics; that would be too easy).

  9. Mick Silver says:

    The journal articles are rubbish. There was a paper on consumer price indexes methods that was completely misleading: Paul Armknecht wrote an article explaining why – which they published. Then there is this paper on sampling that shows why probabilistic methods are worse than non-probabilistic ones. It is written by a sampling statistician who apparently knows nothing about the central limit theorem. It is annoying. I am not writing a rejoinder. The journal will then be cited and their impact factor might increase.
