Bogus IEEE Conferences. How many SCIgen paper in IEEE Xplore ? A 2013 scientometrics paper demonstrated that at least 85 SCIgen papers have been published by IEEE.

Prominent results for Bogus IEEE Conferences.

In 2005 a paper generated by SCIgen, Rooter: A Methodology for the Typical Unification of Access Points and Redundancy was accepted as a non-reviewed paper to the 2005 WMSCI and the authors were invited to speak. The authors of SCIgen described their hoax on their website, and it soon received great publicity when picked up by Slashdot WMSCI withdrew their invitation, but the SCIgen team went anyway, renting space in the hotel separately from the conference and delivering a series of randomly generated talks on their own "track." The organizer of all these conferences is Professor Nagib Callaos. The WMSCI was also sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers from 2000 until 2005. The IEEE stopped granting sponsorship to Callaos from 2006 to 2008. Submitting the paper was a deliberate attempt to embarrass WMSCI, which the authors claim accepts low-quality papers and sends unsolicited requests for submissions in bulk to academics. As the SCIgen website states:lt;/ref> }} Computing writer Stan Kelly-Bootle noted in [[ACM Queue]]that many sentences in the "Rooter" paper were individually plausible, which he regarded as posing a problem for automated detection of hoax articles. He suggested that even human readers might be taken in by the effective use of jargon ("The pun on root/router is par for MIT-graduate humor, and at least one occurrence of methodology is mandatory") and attribute the papers apparent incoherence to their own limited knowledge. His conclusion was that "a reliable gibberish filter requires a careful holistic review by several peer domain experts".lt;/ref>

In conclusion, the result shows that though the much-touted amphibious algorithm for the refinement of randomized algorithms is impossible, the well-known client-server algorithm for the analysis of voice-over-IP by Kumar and Raman runs in _(n) time. The authors can clearly identify important features of visualization of DHTs and analyze them insightfully. It is recommended that the authors should develop ideas more cogently, organizes them more logically, and connects them with clear transitions" * Mikhail Gelfand published a translation of the "Rooter" article in the Russian-language Journal of Scientific Publications of Aspirants and Doctorantsin August 2008. Gelfand was protesting against the journal, which was apparently not peer reviewed and was being used by Russian PhD candidates to publish in an "accredited" scientific journal, charging them 4000 Rubles to do so. The accreditation was revoked two weeks;/ref>lt;/ref>lt;/ref>lt;/ref>lt;/ref>

Spoofing Google Scholar and h-index calculators

A 2010 paper by Cyril Labbe from Joseph Fourier University demonstrated the vulnerability of h-index calculations based on Google Scholar output by feeding it a large set of SCIgen-generated documents that were citing each other (effectively an academic link farm . Using this method the author managed to rank "Ike Antkare" ahead of Albert Einstein for instance.
