We have been made aware of certain fraudulent activities that have been claiming to represent Boreal Environment Research. These activities include a fake, predatory website and unsolicited emails. The aim of the fraud is to trick suspected authors/researchers into believing they are communicating with a journal editor in order to obtain their personal information, scientific results and/or money. Boreal Environment Research’s name, logo and other information have been used without permission to try to convey authenticity.
If you have any concerns or see suspicious communications that reference Boreal Environment Research, please submit an inquiry through our Contact page. Legitimate information regarding Boreal Environment Research and its manuscripts can always be found on our website at http://www.borenv.net.
We recommend that authors do not respond to any unsolicited offers of manuscript submissions nor enter any monetary agreement.
Boreal Environment Research is an open-access journal in which articles are published at no cost to authors.
Warning signs of fraudulent activity:
- If you receive solicitations, advertisements or emails that contain spelling and grammatical errors, or which are poorly formatted.
- If you are asked to send money to proceed with the publication of your manuscript.
- If you receive an email from an email address at a domain that is not affiliated with the journal (for example, @gmail.com, @hotmail.com, @yahoo.com, etc.).
- If there is an insistence on urgency for you to act on the correspondence received within very short time frames that are uncommon for scientific journals.
