Thanks for your comments. I thought that it was a serious journal. Maybe I was confused with a similar name.

Hi,
This is hard to say, but this journal is not indexed in any indexing service, and the publisher is not known, so I guess that one has to be cautious about this journal.

I would not trust it, it is not indexed anywhere, doesn't have an impact factor (http://www.citefactor.org/page/Impact-Factor-2017-2018-j) and the journal website is registered using a free yahoo mail account (https://www.scamadviser.com/check-website/sciencedomain.org).

Agree with colleagues. I can add that the UK address is a mailing service not an office [ https://www.completeformations.co.uk/company-shop/regent-street.html ] and why would a journal based in India publish the British Journal of Mathematics and Computer Science its predecessor title. The Chief editor Xuerong Mao makes no mention as far as I can see of this editorship in an extensive biography [ https://pureportal.strath.ac.uk/en/persons/xuerong-mao/activities/ ]. BW Matt

Thanks everyone for the detailed answer. Therefore, the JAMCS can be regarded as a fake one since it has not been indexed anywhere and they use UK address and Xuerong Mao name to deceive researchers.

I just saw this thread and perhaps as a young journal it did not have much indexing going on but according to their website now they do:
still, even with the above, it is not one of the best journals for math or science publishing in terms of impact
I actually did some checking and Google Scholar has them there

The entire internet is indexed by Google Scholar and Microsoft Academic. There is no mention of this title in Sherpa Romeo, which in any case is not an indexing service. Their claims are spurious.

Hi,
The website of this journal does not specify its publisher, and the indexing is in remote Chinese database, so , I am not sure it is fake, but I would be very cautious about sending papers to this journal. This journal charges APC, so, be cautious.

Indeed, the journal is not indexed in the stand-alone version of the Beall’s list. However (they hide it but you can dig it up using their ISSN number) the publisher behind it is “ScienceDomain International” which is mentioned in the Beall’s list: https://beallslist.net/ as already said by Peter Breuer and Boštjan Gabrovšek .
This by itself is a red flag and an indication that you are dealing with a predatory journal/publisher. The fact that they are not open about the publisher behind the journal is to say the least suspect. However, the picture about this publisher is not as black and white, see for example:
At the very least something to look for more thoroughly.

Thank you. But you (all) should send these informations e.g. to the thread in RG
"Regarding Changing Math into a Matter of Opinion"
Palamadai Seetharaman <palamadaiseetharaman@gmail.com>
where the author is trying to "sell" his merchandise... which is no other than an "elementary proof" of Fermat's Last Theorem. Of course this a common phenomenon (which you can find by the dozen), but this one is particularly tenacious, and the journal involved seems to be the one you're dicussing about, the Journal of Advances in Mathematics and Computer Science ISSN: 2456-9968. It would be an act of public health to get rid of it, especially concerning Fermat's LT !

The matter you discussed concerning the author that "sell" his merchandise was published by another journal "Asian Research Journal of Mathematics", but the same publisher.
On their behalf it must be said that the paper is retracted http://www.sciencedomain.org/abstract/24383

Dear Rob Keller,
Thank you. I knew anyway of the author's previous "publication" in the Asian something. But he is very stubborn (at the same time, very ignorant, as the majority of "amateur fermatists"). Best regards, Thong NQD

Added: and sometimes as arrogant as they are ignorant. Just take a look at the thread on RG, "Fermat's Last Theorem: Quadragesima Anno", whose "boss" is a...lawyer, a constitutionalist at that ! Thong NQD

Rebar T. Abdulwahid, It is not fake. Recently, I'm trying to publish some clinical results that I got a few years ago. I checked several serious magazines. Publisher SPRINGER NATURE, with 2,132 journals, is charging a minimum of 2,000 USD to publish an article. For example:
Zeitschrift für Vergleichende Politikwissenschaft costs 2,380 (Euros) 2,890 (US dollar)
Zentralblatt für Arbeitsmedizin, Arbeitsschutz und Ergonomie 2,490 (Euros) 2,990 (US dollar)
Zoomorphology - 2,690 (Euros) 3390 (US dollar)
Academic Psychiatry 2,690 (Euros) 3,390 (US dollar)
Acoustics Australia 2,690 (Euros) 3,390 (US dollar)
And they are high impact journals. If you're going to call the JOURNAL OF PHARMACEUTICAL RESEARCH INTERNATIONAL a PREDATORY JOURNAL, you have to think long and hard. Most journals I've tried to publish are charging authors absurd amounts. And all with a high impact factor. Even Brazilian journals are charging high prices.
Yours sincerely,

Consider the powerful central role of differential equations in physics and applied mathematics.
In the theory of ordinary differential equations and in dynamical systems we generally consider smooth or C^k class solutions. In partial differential equations we consider far more general solutions, involving distributions and Sobolev spaces.
I was wondering, what are the best examples or arguments that show that restriction to the analytic case is insufficient ?
What if we only consider ODEs with analytic coeficients and only consider analytic solutions. And likewise for PDEs. Here by "analytic" I mean real maps which can be extended to holomorphic ones. How would this affect the practical use of differential equations in physics and science in general ? Is there an example of a differential equation arising in physics (excluding quantum theory !) which only has C^k or smooth solutions and no analytic ones ?
It seems we could not even have an analytic version of the theory of distributions as there could be no test functions .There are no non-zero analytic functions with compact support.
Is Newtonian physics analytic ? Is Newton's law of gravitation only the first term in a Laurent expansion ? Can we add terms to obtain a better fit to experimental data without going relativistic ?
Maybe we can consider that the smooth category is used as a convenient approximation to the analytic category. The smooth category allows perfect locality. For instance, we can consider that a gravitational field dies off outside a finite radius.
Cosmologists usually consider space-time to be a manifold (although with possible "singularities"). Why a manifold rather than the adequate smooth analogue of an analytic space ?
Space = regular points, Matter and Energy = singular points ?

Dear friends colleagues, have you ever received an invitation to publish your work at InTech Open Science (https://www.intechopen.com/)? I have recently been invited to edit a new book title for them. I am usually suspicious with such invitations and must check the authenticity of the publisher first. Interestingly, they claim that they have published the work for two recent Nobel Laureates. Therefore, I would appreciate your experience and opinions regarding InTech Open Science.
Kind regards,

Like so many, I am shocked and saddened at seeing war break out in Europe. My thoughts – and those of the ResearchGate team – are with the people of Ukraine and everyone affected.
ResearchGate is an international company, whose purpose is to enable scientists across the world to work together openly and collaboratively, regardless of borders or nationality. We have people from over 40 countries on our staff of around 200, and being based in Berlin, we are profoundly aware of the human cost of conflicts, the echoes of which have shaped and scarred our home city. We join with the international community in condemning the actions of the Russian state.
We have been asking ourselves: What can we do?
From today, we will offer free advertising space worth $2.5 million on our network to humanitarian organizations working to respond to the crisis. ResearchGate benefits from over 50 million visitors every month, and we hope this initiative can help raise funds and awareness for those organizations that are having direct impact and need support.
We also want to use our platform to highlight the response from the scientific community. Personally, I have found the messages of support from scientists everywhere to be truly heartfelt, and I would like to highlight some of the community initiatives I’ve seen here:
Additionally, I’m posting here some of the organizations responding to the crisis and actively soliciting donations:
To help gather more support for these initiatives, please consider sharing this post further (you don’t need a ResearchGate account to see it), and I will continue to update it with other initiatives as I find them. You can also click “Recommend” below to help others in your ResearchGate network see it. And if you know of any other community initiatives that we can share here please let us know via this form: https://forms.gle/e37EHouWXFLyhYE8A
