Nicht nur zur Weihnachtszeit

… aber leider auch zur Weihnachtszeit gibt es Betrugsversuche. In meinem Postfach lag gestern ein Anschreiben des “Journal of Literature and Art Studies” von David Publishing. Man hat mich auf einen Vortrag angesprochen, den ich beim letzten Treffen der European Society of Japanese Studies gehalten habe und wollte meine Beiträge für das Journal gewinnen.

Ich war zunächst nur mißtrauisch, weil ich überhaupt angeschrieben wurde – immerhin kann ich mir noch nicht erlauben, Buchstaben vor meinen Namen zu setzen. Eine kurze Recherche ergab, daß dieses Journal nicht nur ca. 500 – 1000 Dollar für die Korrektur- und Satzarbeit von ihren Autoren verlangt, sondern auch gegen die Empfehlungen der (in der Regel ebenfalls auf das professionelle Erscheinungsbild des Journals hineingefallenen) Reviewers jeden veröffentlicht, der bereit ist, so viel Geld für eine Veröffentlichung zu bezahlen.

David Publishing versucht, durch optisch professionelles Auftreten und direkten Kontakt mit Wissenschaftlern, die auf Konferenzen gesprochen haben, glaubwürdig zu erscheinen. Dabei beschränken sie sich nicht auf Literatur- und Kunstwissenschaftler, sondern auch Akademiker zahlreicher andere Fachrichtungen. Es ist nur zu hoffen, daß junge Wissenschaftler nicht darauf hereinfallen. Kein zusätzlicher Absatz in der Liste der eigenen Veröffentlichungen kann die Peinlichkeit überdecken, in diesem Haus veröffentlicht worden zu sein. Zur besseren Auffindbarkeit in Suchmaschinen kopiere ich hier einmal die komplette E-Mail, die an mich gesendet wurde.
