Warning about fake IMJ journal[edit]

Since 2019, the new home page of the International Medical Journal is being uploaded on the web site, which is the fake replica of the original IMJ. The fake IMJ mimics the original IMJand claims a similar ISSN 13412051 number with an incorrect format (no hyphen), whereas the ISSN number of original IMJ is 1341-2051. The style of publication also differs as fake IMJ is only an e-journal while the genuine IMJ is available online as well as provides printed hard copies. The fake IMJ asks for the publication charges of $300 for each manuscript while the articles are published free of cost in the genuine IMJ.

The difference between the two IMJ is as follows:
