As the new general data protection regulation approached, I got a ton of emails from services I'm using asking me to give my consent.
My question is, would the new law help me to get rid of the million emails I receive from journals that somehow got my contact information and want me to publish, become an editor, or speak at a conference?
To be clear, it is a theoretical question. I know that each day more and more of these journals appear and there is no way to get rid of them all. But I wonder if I could send them a standard text like "As you know the law.. please delete my contact information".
However, I'm suspect the new law doesn't apply to people that are outside the EU.
