People have been getting invitations to join the International Journal 
of Robotics Research, Applications and Automation.

This name is a blatant imitation of the International Journal of 
Robotics Research.  This journal does not have an ISSN number, and its 
publisher Madridge is listed on Beall's List of predatory publishers.

The robotics community should be on the watch for scam artists like this.
