  Predatory Publishing
Room 023, Dunbar Library; 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Led by Elisabeth Shook, Digital Initiatives Librarian, Library Collection Services. A predatory publisher is a publisher who produces low quality academic journals. These journals are rarely peer-reviewed, and often charge the author a publication fee. The publisher works hard to dupe authors into publishing by emulating well-known publishers, lying about their credentials, and soliciting submissions with spam emails. This workshop will help you identify predatory publishers.
