We recently have received reports about fraudulent emails in the name of the Journal of Bioscience and Bioengineering (JBB). We believe the source is a so-called predatory journal that aims to exploit submission fees.

Always check the source address for any suspicious emails. Please note that replying to a fraudulent email may reveal to the recipient that the email address is valid and may make you a target.
