Predatory Publishing

Example: Publication and Reviewer Opportunities

Dear Professor,

I hope this email finds you well. I am emailing on behalf of PiscoMed Publishing Pte Ltd., a highly reputable and independent publishing house based in Singapore.

Recently, our editorial team is in the process of recruiting reputable Editorial Board Members for our journal, Insight - Electronic. We came across your article, “Ezproxy for Electronic Resource Librarians: Conference Report” published in Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship and found your research highly significant. Therefore, we would like to cordially invite you to join the Editorial Board Member of our journal. We are very keen in featuring your future academic research and original articles in our publication.

In addition, we are planning to publish special issues from 2019 to 2020. And we are inviting a lead guest editor for the special issue of our journal. We sincerely hope that you can accept our invitation of being the lead guest editor, which would be our great honor.

Thank you for your time and consideration of our invitation as an EBM to our journal or a lead guest editor for the special issue. And that would be much greater if you can take both into consideration. To accept our invitation, please reply to this email and we will be happy to proceed with your registration and send you more details about the editorial work. If you are unable to participate and believe someone else is qualified for these roles, please kindly extend this invitation to your respective colleagues/peers.

We look forward to receiving your positive response.

Best regards,
TF See
