FW: Call for papers, reviewers and Editorial-Advisory Board members

Do others of you have faculty reporting ads like this?  From this 
and other sources?

It's touching to see an "overriding passion" to assist academics, 
but could it also be phrased, "Since faculty author, review, and 
edit for free, why not see if they'll do it for us?"

>Every researcher, writer or artist deserves a fair consideration

>sincerely believe that researchers, writers and artists who have 
>devoted months or years to a research/creative project, should 
>not be shut out of the publication world simply because they did 
>not follow some procedural or stylistic rules and guidelines or 
>because their work did not fit in.  All traditional journals 
>have very rigid stylistic or procedural policies that unduly

>Scientific Journals International (SJI) maintains minimal 
>procedural and stylistic rules, and accepts papers that follow 
>any style manual such as APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.  A fair 
>peer-reviewed evaluation system is used to select papers for 
>publication. SJI maintains a rapid electronic submission, review 
>and publication process.  Additionally, we do not set the same 
>limitations on the length of the article as other traditional 
>and online journals do. Our capability for perpetual future 
>accessibility and preservation is also extremely valuable to 
>both authors and readers.
