Journal "Chemical and process engineering" is hijacked

User Rating:  / 6

This is the latest fruit in the market!

The journal "Chemical and process engineering" is hijacked by cyber-criminals recently. This journal hijacking is different from all of other journal hijacking and exactly similar to the hijacking of a Thomson Reuters journal titled "Reef Resources Assessment and Management Technical Paper (RRAMT)" in many ways:

1. In both cases, the hijackers did not register a new domain for the fake website. They hacked an old website or renewed a recently expired domain.

2. Both of them recruited their authors from conference papers.

3. Of course, it is me that detected both of the journals for the first time :)

4. The hijackers of both journals are the same person or group of cyber-criminals. Since their first attempt of journal hijacking was so fruitful for them, they decided to simply copy-paste their previous METHODOLOGY of RRAMT journal hijacking.
