Advertising

Predatory journals try to attract new submissions by aggressive email advertising. They promise a rapid peer review process and offer discounts for APCs (Article processing charges). Very often, large-format and sometimes colorful fonts are used as well as underlined and bold print. Regarding content, sometimes the correspondence attracts attention by an exuberant wording which, however, has no direct link to the addressee.
