(*) In order to increase artificially the impact factor of their journal, you have to know that some editors choose arbitrarily to take your article into consideration – or NOT, only by taking into account :

  • the number of your contacts as can be seen in your profiles (in LinkedIn, Researchgate, etc)
  • the number of scientists working in the field of the submitted article
  • the number of analogous articles published recently

in order to estimate if your article will be cited, without any consideration of the scientific content.

We garantee you that all submitted articles are processed from a strict scientific point of view, and that we do not practice any censorship of this type.
