Who we are
Think. Check. Submit. helps researchers identify trusted journals for their research. Through a range of tools and practical resources, this international, cross-sector initiative aims to educate researchers, promote integrity, and build trust in credible research and publications.
The campaign has been produced with the support of a coalition from across scholarly communications in response to discussions about deceptive publishing practices.
