Email scam!

We have been made aware of emails in circulation that purport to come from Diabetologia inviting researchers to submit their work to the journal. The scammers go on to invite direct submission to them (ie not through our online submission system) and follow this with an acceptance letter requesting payment of processing charges before online publication. The emails are highly plausible, include key journal metrics and are targeted at diabetes researchers, but they are not legitimate. Please contact the editorial office ( if you think you have received any such emails. Cases will be handled by Springer’s Security Operations team and domains will be closed down as we become aware of them.
