Identifying Potential Predatory Publishers

Wednesday, October 17, 2018 - 10:00am to 11:00am
Room 308, Howard-Tilton Memorial Library

Have you ever received an email inviting you to publish in a scholarly journal? Have you been unsure of the quality of the journal – perhaps they are a new start-up, not yet known, very particular, or the launch of something big?
Recently, it has become harder and harder to distinguish the trustworthy journals from predatory journals. Predatory publishers and journals may disseminate plagiarized materials, or material lacking in quality control and lacking peer review all while charging the author a fee.
In this workshop/discussion we will discuss how you can identity possible predatory journals and publishers. Everyone is also encouraged to bring in examples and share their own experiences as well.

Audience: Faculty, Graduate Students, and Staff
Presenter: Raquel Horlick and Eric Wedig
