They claim to be an open access publisher for academic research. But promising results from a "rigorous review" within 20 days from submission hints that they are not serious about the review. Serious publishers typically give 3…6 weeks of review time, not to speak about all the work needed before and after the review.

Too many of those less reputable open access academic journals around these days, invariably using spam to promote themselves. See for

Fake Academic publisher.

No reputable academic publisher would resort to harvesting peoples email added from University web sites so they can spam them.

NEVER trust a spammer
NEVER buy from spammers (HIGH fraud risks)
NEVER visit spammed web sites (HIGH malware risks)

Potential, possible, or probable predatory scholarly open-access publisher.
