When looking for properties of the negative exponential distribution, in connection with an X validated question, I came across this nonsensical paper, starting with a truncated and drifted exponential distribution being defined as a negative exponential distribution, including a nonsensical bound a in (1.1), followed by an equally nonsensical characterisation of the distribution, including a theorem with a useless function Φ… Unsurprisingly, the publisher (SCIRP) of the Open Journal of Statistics is part of Beall’s list of potential, possible, or probable] predatory publishers. (List that is now maintained by Scholarly Open Access.)

your interesting published article “An introduction to the special issue “

In the flow of unsolicited emails interested in publishing my work, a contender for the top call is this one as of today from Computer Communication & Collaboration that cites my foreword to the special issue of Statistics & Computing published out of the talks at MCMski IV in Chamonix. In 2014. (According to the above site, the publisher of the journal, Better Advances Press, does not meet most of its criteria and identified as predatory by Beall’s List, as of January 3, 2017.)

Your interesting published article “An introduction to the special issue “Joint IMS-ISBA meeting – MCMSki 4″” drives me to call for new papers, on behalf of Computer Communication & Collaboration, which is an English quarterly journal in Canada.

This peer-reviewed journal focuses on smart internet and it welcomes papers on general theories of computer science, data communications, multimedia, social network, machine learning, data mining, intelligent collaboration and other relevant topics, both theoretical and empirical.

All papers should be written in professional English. The length of 2000-6000 words is suggested. We accept papers in MS-word or PDF format.

If your paper is qualified for publication after refereeing, it will be published within 2-4 months from the date of submission.

Thank you for your consideration.
