Hijacked journal

Journals that impersonate other journals indexed in the Web of Science, by buying very similar Internet domains. These are generally journals that have no digital edition or whose digital edition is merely testimonial. They send emails to researchers posing as publishers of the journals they impersonate, saying they can easily get published in quality journals in exchange for a fee.
