Regarding the following quote:

... editors say an increasing number of journals based in China warn authors that they are not affiliated with any paper-selling companies.
Mara Hvistendahl, China's Publication Bazaar, Science, 2013.

Partly out of curiosity and partly because I work in China, I'm interested in finding a concrete example of this.

Question : What is an example of a journal based in China which "warns authors that they are not affiliated with any paper-selling companies"?

Ideally, I'd like a web link to a journal based in China showing this warning. Or perhaps someone received such a warning in an email as part of communications with a journal.

  • Have you tried asking around colleagues in China? Usually Chinese journals work chiefly in Chinese, getting submissions of local authors. – Scientist Dec 3 '18 at 17:59

    What is a "paper-selling company"? Is that like a paper mill? – einpoklum May 13 at 11:33
  • Is a "paper-selling company" a company that churns out academic writing (e.g. like an essay mill), or is it a company that literally sells physical paper? – Robert Columbia May 17 at 14:30
