Subject: Boycott International Journal of English and Cultural Studies
I received an unsolicited invitation to publish in a new journal called the International Journal of English and Cultural Studies. Its web address is http://redfame.com/journal/index.php/ijecs. I responded with a determined refusal to accept the invitation, because the journal charges US$300 to publish an article. The only scholars who need to pay to publish are those who can least afford to, i.e., those who are earliest in their careers. The fee is exorbitant and exploitative. Please assist in boycotting it.
