UCDavis IT and GMail think this "Open Journal of Genetics" journal announcement is SPAM, I do too #EndScienceSpam
Just got this email which both Gmail and UC Davis systems think is SPAM (see below). It is from yet another new journal and the journal certainly seems a bit, well, off to me. I am posting such emails from journals like this in the hope that in Google search results people at least see some comments on the web at least asking questions about the quality of these journals. I do not know any details about this journal but I note I could not find any actual description of their licensing/copyright policies and all the papers list the copyright as belonging to the journal. This seems to me to be unlikely to fit the standard definition of "open access" though it is very hard to tell from their website.
