YASSP (Yet another SPAMMY science publisher)

Just got an email from YAP (yet another publisher) recruiting articles for new journals.  These ones seem just about as SPAMMY as some of the other recent ones to come out.  Uggh.  Double uggh.  Email is posted below:

Introducing ‘Research Journal of Earth and Planetary Sciences
Dear Colleague,
The Research Journal of Earth and Planetary Sciences (RJEPS) is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal that will be published monthly by Global Research Journals    (http://www.globalresearchjournals.org/?a=journal&id=rjeps).                                    RJEPS is dedicated to increasing the depth of the subject across disciplines with the ultimate aim of expanding knowledge of the subject.
Editors and reviewers
RJEPS is seeking energetic, qualified and high profile researchers to join its editorial team as editors, subeditors or reviewers. Kindly send your resume to: rjeps.submit@globalresearchjournals.org
Call for Research Articles
RJEPS will cover all areas of the subject. The journal welcomes the submission of manuscripts that meet the general criteria of significance and scientific excellence, and will publish:
·  Original articles in basic and applied research
·  Case studies
·  Critical reviews, surveys, opinions, commentaries and essays
We invite you to submit your manuscript(s) to: rjeps.submit@globalresearchjournals.org
 for publication. Our objective is to inform authors of the decision on their manuscript(s) within four weeks of submission. Following acceptance, a paper will normally be published in the next issue. Guide to authors and other details are available on our website;  http://www.globalresearchjournals.org/?a=journal&id=rjeps&menu=guidelines     
 RJEPS is an Open Access Journal
One key request of researchers across the world is unrestricted access to research publications. Open access gives a worldwide audience larger than that of any subscription-based journal and thus increases the visibility and impact of published works. It also enhances indexing, retrieval power and eliminates the need for permissions to reproduce and distribute content. RJEPS is fully committed to the Open Access Initiative and will provide free access to all articles as soon as they are published.
Best regards,
Otu Richard
Editorial Assistant
Research Journal of Earth and Planetary Sciences (RJEPS)

Author: Jonathan Eisen

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
