A growing number of new publishers are inviting researchers and recent Ph.D. graduates to publish their work in journals of questionable value. These “predatory publishers” often present themselves as reputable publishers and then charge fees in order to get the author’s work published. Predatory publishers mimic the business models of well-respected Open Access journals, making them difficult to recognize.
This workshop is aimed at faculty and graduate students looking to publish their research. Its goals are to help you understand predatory publishing and recognize predatory publishing inquiries. The presenters will discuss ways that you can investigate the reputations of publishers and journals as well as how you can combat predatory publishing in the context of your own discipline or profession.
