ACADEMIC SCAM ALERT ABOUT PARIS CONFERENCE 2017

January 5, 2018

It appears that some people whose abstracts were accepted for the EASSW-Unaforis Paris Conference are receiving an email from a LESS REPUTABLE JOURNAL titled “Journal of Modern Education Reviews” or “Modern Education Review” to publish their abstract.
Please note that the EASSW has nothing to do with that, this is a phishing operation. Ultimately they attempt to charge the person per page for publication.
We advise anyone receiving this request to avoid opening the email and not to click on any links within. Unfortunately this kind of situation are not new and other similar associations have been target.

Here is a couple of links to a warning that other conferences put out about this journal:

We will do our best to find out further actions to protect our members from this kind of practice.

Our best regards,
EASSW – European Association of Schools of Social Work
