Email scammers targeting historians, AHA warns

tags: American Historical Association, emails, scams




The American Historical Association is warning members about a new email scam offering a pay-for-play chance to publish a scholarly paper.

The typical scam email, the AHA notes, "contains grammatical errors and unprofessional language" and is sent on behalf of non-existent journals.

If you receive an unsolicited email from an "academic" journal, please, due diligence. Google the name of the journal to verify it is real, and never, ever pay to have a paper placed in a journal.
