I got an email this morning, with the subject heading: We cordially invite you to be the Speaker of EPPH 2017.
The speaker? I thought. Finally, the greatness of my work shines through, all the way to China. But, predictably, the organizers of the 9th International Conference on Environmental Pollution and Public Health are merely inviting me to submit a paper or a request to be an invited speaker. The paper, they promise, will be published in that august, though regrettably fake, academic publication: Journal of Geoscience and Environment Protection , another SCIRP bogus academic journal. What are we to conclude? That EPPH certainly fits the profile of a fake academic conference. Beware.
