On November 10, 2020, we confirmed a counterfeit website operating as the actual “Yonago Acta Medica.”

The creators of this fraudulent website were attempting to solicit manuscript submissions from researchers intending to publish with Yonago Acta Medica, and charging them a fee for their submissions. We have also confirmed that they sent out information to authors’ email addresses by impersonating the editor-in-chief of Yonago Acta Medica, including a fake acceptance letter and a fake version of a PDF file of the author's paper.

We have notified the operator of the fake website that we are aware of their activity, and have demanded the deletion of the site and cessation of sending e-mails using the Yonago Acta Medica copyright. Further legal action against them may be necessary if there is no compliance to these demands.
