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

Found deeper in their site:

"We are currently considering all types of investments, strategic 
alliance, mergers or buy-out proposals. Please complete and 
submit the form below and we will contact you shortly."

and their innovative method of financing the journal:

"a processing fee of $99.95 (for two authors, the processing fee 
is $199.95, for three authors, the processing fee is $299.95, and 
for four or more authors, the processing fee is $399.95"

>>Every researcher, writer or artist deserves a fair 
>>consideration to be published. Scientific Journals 
>>International (SJI) provides an efficient forum for publishing 
>>research and creative work from all disciplines. SJI has 
>>assembled an extensive and prestigious Editorial and Advisory 
>>Board (www.scientificjournals.org/editorial_board.htm).
>>This initiative is driven by an overriding passion to assist 
>>researchers, writers and artists to cope with the "publish or 
>>perish" reality that has been created by the policies of the 
>>academia and funding agencies. According to several surveys, a 
>>large majority of authors and researchers cite slow review 
>>process and publication delays in the current system as a major 
>>obstacle to their publishing objectives.  Many have also 
>>expressed concerns about the fairness and integrity of the peer 
>>review process in traditional scholarly publishing. Some 
>>scholars have argued that there is a need to liberate the 
>>publication process for broader and fairer access.
>>Scientific Journals International (SJI) is the first global 
>>initiative that intends to accomplish this objective.  We 
>>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 create artificial barriers and in effect 
>>retard innovation and creativity.
>>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.
>>Our manuscript submission guidelines can be found at
