Find out about the steps to identify and differentiate predatory from reputable publishers, and methods to locate quality open access journals to publish your research.
Predatory or unethical academic publishing is well established and is becoming increasingly elaborate. Commonly these publishers seek to take advantage of the Gold Open Access model of publication, whereby the author pays for their research article to be made available on open access. Predatory publishers commonly accept the author’s fee but fail to provide the benefits of a legitimate journal, such as peer review, editing and inclusion in a reputable academic database (e.g., Scopus, Web of Science).
This session will outline a range of common practices employed by disreputable publishers, and emerging issues and practices. We will also outline steps to identify and differentiate predatory from reputable publishers, and methods to locate quality open access journals to publish your research.
