OMICS Index


Country: India
State:
OMICS is a publisher of "open-access" journals (aka a "predatory publisher") that spams scraped, purchased or appended lists. It does this to solicit contributions to its journals and (by implication) fees and/subscriptions.

OMICS operates under a number of business names. It also uses a very large number of names for its journals. Most of these journal names closely resemble the name of a journal that is widely respected in the academic community.

These similarly-named journals have deceived a number of spam recipients into submitting work to what they believe is a respected academic journal.
