“Predatory” Journals: How to Avoid the Shams and Scams

“Predatory” Journals: How to Avoid the Shams and Scams Online

As a researcher, you are eager to publish your work. But don’t let your eagerness allow you to be fooled by fake (often called “predatory”) journals. These low-quality outlets exist for the sole purpose of profit, not for the dissemination of peer-reviewed research. Indeed, they frequently lie about their peer review practices and engage in other forms of deceit. Come learn how to spot these bad actors, and how to critically evaluate any journal before submitting a paper. We'll also touch on "predatory" conferences and book publishers.

Can't make it? If you're interested but can't make it, register anyway. The presentation will be recorded and made available to registrants.
