Verified Reviews
Note: Verified reviews are sourced from across review platforms and social media globally.
Our research group had a paper last year, which went through major revisions (three reviewers, one minor revision and two major revisions), followed by minor revisions (two reviewers agreed to publish, one reviewer suggested further modifications before acceptance). After the minor revisions were submitted, the editor directly rejected the paper, stating that it had a limited readership.

The review process of the journal is peculiar. Although the review speed is fast, with the China Academy of Sciences and many domestic universities no longer recognizing publishers like MDP and Hindaw (for three reasons: many warning risk journals, high charges, and suspected paper quality due to high publication volume), the journal will gradually lose the Chinese market. Therefore, I comfort my colleagues in the group to consider themselves lucky.

In my personal opinion, having been engaged in scientific research for over ten years and having submitted numerous papers, I have never seen such an operation.

In conclusion, I hope Chinese scholars will be vigilant against such journals and publishers like MDP and Hindaw.
