Summary:

For the first time, the Federal Trade Commission is going after what it considers to be a predatory publisher of scientific journals. The agency is charging OMICS Group, an India-based, Nevada-incorporated conglomerate — along with its president and director, Srinubabu Gedela, and two affiliated companies, iMedPub LLC and Conference Series LLC — with misrepresenting the legitimacy of its publications, deceiving researchers, and hiding publication fees.
