[O]ur goal is to support the scientific communities and networks, as we combine to propel science and health into the future.

  1. "Longdom conferences coined as ‘father of all conferences’"

    "Longdom" are parasite publishers as well as conference grifters. They seem to be another concealed branch of OMICS, with journals which used to bear the OMICS imprint suddenly rebranded as Longdom in an attempt to lose the stench of fraudulence associated with publishing through OMICS.

    Here, for instance, a link to an OMICS journal page now redirects to the Longdom counterpart.

    Longdom and Lexis use the same Belgian phone-number, but since neither of them are actually located in Brussells and are just routing everything through a virtual office. this doesn't prove that they're associated.
