The journal "Scientia Guaianae" has been hijacked by cyber-criminals:


I have the track of the activities of the person who hijacked this journal, from 9 months ago. In June 2013 I received some reports saying the journal is hijacked. However, I needed some additional information to come to a conclusion. Today, I have all the proofs. So, I clearly announce that The journal "Scientia Guaianae" has been hijacked at the counterfeit website http://www.scientiaguaianae.org

Today, I have some ideas and proofs that links the hijacker of this journal to some other journals. It is confirmed that the journal of "Balkan Tribological association" has been hijacked by the same person who hijacked the Scientia Guaianae journal. I have a confirmed report that shows the person who hijacked both of the above journals, is behind a counterfeit website that has been registered to hijack the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA). I have some other information that links the hijackers of all above journals to hijackers of some other scientific journals.


The image below shows a screenshot from the first page of the counterfeit website of the hijacked journal. See also the misleading impact factor they announced on the top of the homepage!
