Caution, Rip-Off! How to recognize and avoid predatory journals.

Predatory journals publish articles and charge publication fees without ensuring adequate quality assurance procedures (peer review). Moreover, articles in predatory journals are often not indexed in the relevant subject databases, thus remaining hidden from the community and infrequently cited. The recent report of the InterAcademy Partnership (IAP) 'Combatting Predatory Academic Journals and Conferences' reveals that more than 15,000 predatory journals exist, and the number is increasing.

The broad spectrum of behavior in predatory journals ranges from questionable and unethical to truly fraudulent practices. As methods become more sophisticated, it is increasingly difficult to identify predatory journals.

We will show you in our workshop how to spot predatory practices before submitting your manuscript.

Were / are you unsure about how reputable a particular journal is? Please bring those examples to the workshop and we will look at them together!
