Abstract

 The world of academia has seen an unprecedented outbreak of so-called “HIJACKED JOURNALs,” where hackers create counterfeit websites that pose as the legitimate of actual journals (1-4). After publishing several scientific papers about HIJACKED JOURNALs and phony publishers, I have received a lot of email from scholars around the world who express their distress about being cheated by journal hijackers and losing their own hard-won academic reputations. They are also concerned about others stealing their research findings. Consistently, the most frequent question I receive in these emails concerns one important issue: Is the legitimate author allowed to republish her/his article in a LEGITIMATE JOURNAL- or would that constitute DUPLICATE PUBLICATION? In this short article, I want to share important information and an idea with readers and scholars in the academic world about this timely topic.
