Identifying Potential Predatory Publishers

Uptown Campus

Have you ever received an email inviting you to publish in a scholarly journal? Have you been unsure of the quality of that journal – perhaps they are a new start-up, and not yet known, or perhaps the journal is produced by a predatory publisher looking to take advantage of authors. Recently, it has become harder and harder to distinguish the trustworthy journals from predatory journals. Predatory publishers and journals may disseminate plagiarized materials, or material lacking in quality control and lacking peer review all while charging the author a fee. In this workshop/discussion hosted by Tulane University Libraries, we will discuss how you can identity possible predatory journals and publishers. Everyone is also encouraged to bring in examples and share their own experiences as well.
