Predatory Publishing in Biomedicine

Monday, June 19, 2017 // 12:00 pm

Medical Education and Research Building: Ginsburg 248 -- 3500 N. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19140

Predatory publishers run online journals that abuse the open access model and will accept almost any paper submitted. They offer little in terms of copy editing or peer review. Journal websites may include false information about impact factors, editorial board members, and other affiliations. This session will provide an overview of the problem, and will teach you how to identify and avoid predatory biomedical journals.
