This review critically analyzes Internet Science Publications, a one-man operation that falsely claims to be “one of the world's largest online medical publishers.” The publisher's site is merely a deceptive endeavor aimed at making money, for it is replete with advertising on every page, including ads for an anti-aging tonic the owner markets himself. Exploiting the author-pays model of Open Access publishing, Internet Science Publications charges authors upon acceptance of an article, essentially functioning as a scholarly vanity press. The analysis includes a look at libraries' policies of including records for this (and similar) publishers' e-serials in library online catalogs and questions the practice of promoting low-quality works vanity publishers make available.
