Introduction to Predatory Publishing

Have you ever received an email from a journal you’ve never heard of asking you to submit an article, be a reviewer, or to serve on their editorial board? Did something seem off that made you question the legitimacy of the journal? Predatory journals may appear legitimate at first glance, and their promises of speedy publication can be enticing when you want to get an article published. Author beware! Publishing in these questionable journals limits the number of people who see and cite your research, and could be harmful to your reputation. In this webinar, we’ll look at the differences in qualities of reputable and predatory publishers, identify red flags of predatory publishing, and develop the skills to identify a predatory publishers’ website and email communications so you can avoid falling victim to these publishers.
