Predatory publishing: What is it and how to avoid it (Macdonald campus)

Event

Macdonald-Stewart Building Faculty Lounge (MS2-022), 21111 Lakeshore Road, St Anne de Bellevue, QC, H9X 3V9, CA

 

Workshop description: 

A January 2017 article in University Affairs wrote “Beware! Academics are getting reeled in scam journals”. The article highlighted some of the common fears and concerns surrounding publishing in today’s academic landscape.

This leads many graduate students and faculty to wonder: how can you tell what’s a credible publication or conference? Is this a legitimate solicitation to publish my thesis or a scam? This 60-minute session will discuss predatory publishing, how to identify a legitimate publisher, what resources are available to help researchers on-campus as well as the common myths and perceptions surrounding Open Access.
