The preferred format for the manuscript is APA, although the MSWord format is also acceptable. Note that the submission deadline for the first issue is May 20, 2011. Our objective is to inform author s of the decision on their manuscript(s) within four weeks.

Ha ha.   There is no journal Crime media cultere.  A petroleum journal?   Who wold pose APA and MSWord as  contrasting members in the category of format?   
But:  what is the purpose?  This isn't sophisticated enough to actually be doing a pay-journal scam, and the web page above isn't even in grammatical English. Cui bono?  Hm... are they targeting foreign academics trying to break into English language publications?
