Predatory publishers run online journals that abuse the open access model and will accept almost any paper submitted. They offer little in terms of copy editing or peer review. Journal websites may include false information about impact factors, editorial board members, and other affiliations. This session will provide an overview of the problem, and will teach you how to identify and avoid predatory biomedical journals and predatory conferences. Suggestions for finding reliable journals in which to publish are included. Please contact the workshop organizer if you wish to register a group of 15 or more.
Workshop is open to: undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff, and Temple Hospital staff.
