Paul DodaSome of you may have received an email that appears to have been sent by Elsevier, inviting you to submit scholarly articles via email for publication in our various journals.

The subject line of the message is "Manuscripts Submission" and it is sent from a Gmail email address.

Please be assured that Elsevier is in no way associated with this fraudulent email campaign and we are currently investigating to identify the people responsible. Elsevier does not use free, third-party email providers such as Gmail and Hotmail to solicit submissions from authors. Additionally, almost all our journals only accept submissions via an online submission system, for example Elsevier Editorial System (EES).

If you receive any emails that appear to be a part of this fraudulent solicitation, please do not respond to the message and do not open any attachments it may contain.  If you have any concerns, please contact our Support Team at support@elsevier.com
