Predatory Publishing – How to support researchers in identifying trusted journals and publishers for their research
This free webinar hosted by UKSG is a great opportunity to listen to expert speakers. UKSG will send registrants a link to the recording after the session.
About the webinar
This webinar will help those who work with researchers offer straightforward advice to help them avoid publishing in places that they would want to avoid.
1. Lorraine will cover why predatory publishing is a problem. She will talk about the scams that predatory publishers use. Why these are becoming more sophisticated and difficult to detect.
2. Lorraine will walk the delegates through Think. Check. Submit. and show them how to use it as a tool to help librarians and researchers avoid predatory publishers.
3. Katherine will provide practical examples of how she has used the principles of Think. Check. Submit when helping researchers think about where to publish. She will provide examples of how lack of due diligence has led to difficulties with predatory publishers, and how researchers can avoided these issues in the future.
