Advanced Research Journals is one of the international publishers for Open Access journals devoted to various disciplines in science and technology.
There are links to individual journals on the left frame of the webpage. Of these, only the first three links are active at present, those to: International Journal of Drug Delivery, International Journal of Phytomedicine and International Journal of Cancer Science. To date, there have been no issues of any of these journals.
The home page of the journal provides no information about the publisher of these journals. However, when I clicked today on the logo in the upper left corner of the page, I was taken to Elsevier’s ScienceDirect.
Question: Why this link? I could not find any of the Advanced Research Journals in ScienceDirect. A Google search didn’t provide any further information about these journals.
In view of recent reports, such as this one in The Scientist (May 7, 2009; free registration required) about sponsored journals published by Elsevier, it would be of interest to find out whether or not Advanced Research Journals is sponsored by Elsevier.
