Good article nominations[edit]

Thanks for your edits to George William Symes. I currently have three articles at WP:GAN#CHEM: Frank Spedding, Edwin McMillan and Willard Libby. If you could review one or more of them, that would be much appreciated. Hawkeye7 (talk) 07:33, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry but I'll have to decline. I just don't have time for GA reviews at the moment. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 12:07, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

Recent page moves[edit]

Hi, I find your use of disambiguators confusing. A few days ago, you moved the articles on the two journals (one defunct) with the title Open Medicine to "Open Medicine (publisher's name)". Today you moved Journal of Optics to "Journal of Optics (publisher's name journal)". Why the different treatment? I find the former much more logical than the latter (apart from the not-very-pretty repeated use of "journal" in the title). Perhaps an oversight? --Randykitty (talk) 15:38, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

Not quite sure what you find inconsistent. I moved Journal of Optics (IOP Publishing) to Journal of Optics (IOP Publishing journal) for consitency with our other dab'd titles (e.g. Physics (American Physical Society journal)). If I moved things to 'Open Medicine (publisher's name), then that's an oversight/mistake, and they should have been at Open Medicine (publisher's name journal).

Journals[edit]

Dear Headbomb,

I've seen, that you are preparing lists of missing academic journals from WP:JCW. May you send me a table of the most-cited journals in english-language Wikipedia? I would like to check their coverage in German Wikipedia.--Kopiersperre (talk) 14:26, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Redirect Barnstar-E.svg The Redirect Barnstar
Your diligent work in the area of redirect categorization and improvement is duly recognized and greatly appreciated. You are truly one of the unsung heroes of Wikipedia, and we hope you continue to enjoy your improvement of this awesome encyclopedia! To Headbomb, thank you for updating redirects about the Cochrane Collaboration. Axl ¤ [Talk] 10:18, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Good Afternoon or Good Evening Sir,

We are writing to you from Nova Science Publishers, Inc. and are wondering you why keep changing accurate, factual information on the Wikipedia account (today, such as in the case of our employees). If you are in New York, we would be happy to show you around since you do not seem to believe that these people work there. Alternatively, a fax from our accountant or Paychex company might be helpful. We thank you for noticing our company and are honored that you follow us. But we are not sure why you seem to have such deep, negative personal feelings towards us. Look forward to hearing from you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by WikipediaNOVA (talkcontribs) 19:28, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Question from NOVA Publishers[edit]

Also, on this page, where is NOVA Publishers - http://scholarlyoa.com/publishers/?

You linked this to our wikipedia site but NOVA is not on this list. Please let me know if we are missing something so we can forward the article to our lawyer. Thank you for bringing this article to our attention. — Preceding unsigned comment added by WikipediaNOVA (talkcontribs) 19:32, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Again you state in the "Talk", that we do not have Vera Popovic or Cathy DeGregory as our heads of accounting and billing, but they are in fact the Managers of Accounting and Billing, which has grown over the years. They have their own department and employees. Additionally, they have worked there for over a decade in previous roles but that is their current role. Please let me know if you would like to come and visit and see for yourself. We would be glad to show you around to prove to you that your statements are completely false. — Preceding unsigned comment added by WikipediaNOVA (talkcontribs) 19:38, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

@WikipediaNOVA: I will point out Wikipedia has a policy on legal threats which you may want to review before continuing further. Additionally, if you have a problem with Beall's list, then you should take it with Jeffrey Beall, not Wikipedia. Also, the reference given is http://scholarlyoa.com/2015/05/26/watch-out-for-publishers-with-nova-in-their-name/, not http://scholarlyoa.com/publishers/.
As for the second part, I'm not sure why you think I mention Vera Popovic or Cathy DeGregory, or to what 'talk' you are referring to because I have never heard of these people, and I don't see it on the talk page of Talk:Nova Science Publishers. The question is not whether or not these people exists and have these job titles, this is a matter of given due weight to said facts. Compare, for instance, with The Coca-Cola Company, a company much much bigger, with much vaster operations than Nova Publishers. They list 3 'key people', the Chairman & CEO, the Executive Vice President, and the Outside Director (unsure what that does exactly). What's not including is a breakdown of each individual department and manages within The Coca-Cola Company. Or if you want another publisher to compare to, see Reed Elsevier, which only includes the CEO and the Chairman. Simply put, no one care who's the head of accounting. This is not just true of Nova Science Publishers, but of pretty much any company out there, unless there's a some major financial scandal involving accounting.
I will also point out that it's painfully obvious that you have a conflict of interest, so I suggest you familiarize yourself with our policies on conflicts of interests before editing further.
