Pulsus Is Another OMICS Tentacle

PULSUS Medical Meetings are put on by the Pulsus Group. Initially a reputable publisher, the Pulsus Group of journals were sold to OMICS in 2016. The domain, which Pulsus used in the email to me is registered to Srinubabu Gedela of the OMICS Group. Incredibly, the email denies that it is a promotional message and refers to my "eminence in the field" of osteoporsis.

A reader invited to the group's "Annual congress on Mycology and Fungal Infections" wrote me (10/13/17) that "it took about ten seconds on Google to see the street address (attached photo) and to discover that between 150 and 850 different companies online all claim the same little street address -- that must be one cramped 'Lower Ground  Floor'! I think I'll take a pass on this one." The email he received is excerpted below. The questionable address also is used by EuroSciCon.
