Re: [xmca] FW: Invitation to Submit an Article
Funny this topic has come up here, as I received the below email just a few
days ago. Is this a fishy one too? The appeal to vanity is pretty clear in
the line " I have had an opportunity to read your paper: Informing new
string programmes: Lessons learned from an Australian experience which was
published in British Journal of Music Education. Volume 28, Issue 3, 2011.
Through your works, I know you are an expert in the field of education."
I was the fourth named author of this article and only worked on the first
draft of it as a Research Assistant before I even began my PhD 3 years ago,
so I hardly think that a reader of this one article can be assured that I
am an expert in education! With my suspicions already aroused, the later
mention of a publication fee (which is pretty easy to miss - but I did see
it) sent this email to the bin until this thread made me dig it out again
and look a bit closer. The website certainly looks pretty legit and I
finally found that the publication fee is $400US. With the promised
turnaround time of 1-2 weeks for review I can see how junior academics
under the pump to publish might be tempted - but impoverished PhD students
who have been turned off trying to enter academia certainly won't be!
