Odd conference and journal invitations

We all get our fair share of spam – although as filters are getting better I actually don’t see that much of it – but as an academic scientist there is a special class of junk hitting the inbox: Invitations to publish in journals and to give talks at conferences. Some of these invitations are legit – most are not! I’ll just list (all) of the ones I get that are obviously out of scope1, starting from today. These lists cover only the days from Dec 5 to Dec 16 …


  • Journal of Dental Research and Practice
  • Nephrology and Renal Diseases
  • Annals of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism
  • Medicine and Clinical Science.
  • Annals of Clinical and Medical Case Reports
  • International Journal of Pharma Sciences and Scientific Research (IJPSR)
  • Journal of Water Science and Engineering
  • Journal of Dentistry and Oral Health
  • Dental, Oral and Maxillofacial Research
  • Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery


  • World Pediatrics 2020
  • Functional and Healthy Foods for Longevity
  • Huntingtons-Europe2020
  • 11th International Conference on Skin Ageing and Challenges
  • 3rd Global Conference on Nursing & Healthcare
  • World Congress on Cardiology and Heart Diseases
  • Nanomedicine and Drug Delivery systems
  • Ophthalmology Conferences 2020
  • World Nursing Care Congress
  • Global Summit on Infectious Diseases
  • World Congress on Pain Research & Management

  1. I’m being generous here. Invitations that are even remotely relevant are not included. I don’t want to call out someone for an honest mistake.
