What are the legal obligations of "Editorial Board Membership Agreement"?

Discussion in 'Education' started by Alone Programmer, Oct 8, 2018.

  1. Basically, I have two questions.

    First question: Anyone knows EnPress publisher is just a scam/predatory publisher or not? Cause they sent an email to me to invite me to join editorial board of a journal, which is related to my field. But I'm wondering is this a predatory journal, which is called OA-Coating Journal, cause their website looks unprofessional to me besides that there is no any published article in their journal!

    Second question: They (EnPress publisher) sent an "Editorial Board Membership Agreement" to me and somewhere in this document they mentioned: "By this agreement, you acknowledge and agree that all ideas and improvements conceived by you in performance of your service shall be the property of the publisher". I don't understand what they're pointing to exactly! Can any describe what's the meaning of this sentence? Which service that would be provided by me will be their property?

    Any idea or suggestion is appreciated.
