What do you make of it? Is this a scam?
Here is why I tend to be suspicious of new open access journals. I published my first paper with Philosophical Frontiers. At the time, I was a graduate student eager to get his name in print and the journal was supposed to be open access. It turned out to be a mistake, since the journal has disappeard from cyberspace since then.
Here is the email from The Open Journal of Philosophy:
Dear Dr. Moti Mizrahi ,
I am writing to cordially invite you to submit or recommend papers to Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP, ISSN: 2163-9442), a fast track peer-reviewed and open access academic journal published by Scientific Research Publishing (SCIRP), which is one of the largest open access journal publishers with more than 200 journals. To date SCIRP journals have been indexed by many important databases.
As an Open Access Journal, OJPP devotes itself to promoting scholarship in philosophy and to speeding up the publication cycle thereof. Researchers worldwide will have full access to all the articles published online and be able to download them with zero subscription fee. Moreover, the influence of your research will rapidly expand once you become an OA author, because an OA article enjoys more chances to be used and cited than does one that plods through the subscription barriers of traditional publishing model.
"Open" makes this Journal unique. "Open" goes global, historical, cultural; actual, theoretical, detailed; artistic, scientific, sociopolitical. "Open" goes outer space and nuclear minute, and heartfelt subtle.
The only desideratum is to go basic, and go sensitively coherent. Be clear, even in the wrong, not vague, even in the right. Never beat around the bush; burn the bush itself!
This is "philosophy"! It means that any theme in any methodology, written as above, is welcome.
We shall eagerly look forward to your vigorous submissions of exciting essay within our aims and scope which is shown at www.scirp.org/journal/ojpp. And papers are expected to be submitted at "Submission" section in the above website.
