Abstract : It is generally assumed that fee paying bibliographic databases guarantee the quality of the data they sell. This technical report shows that this assertion can be challenged. It demonstrates a software method of detecting duplicate and fake publications. The charged-for services (such as IEEE Xplore) accept and index these kinds of publications.
