Protect Against Predatory Publishing

Elisabeth Shook, Digital Initiatives Librarian at Paul Laurence Dunbar Library, will lead a predatory publishing workshop on Tuesday, March 28th, from 11:00 – Noon. This workshop is open to all faculty, staff, and students.  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.
