Publishing During a Pandemic: Avoiding Predatory Publishers

Wed, Jul 29, 2020 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This workshop will be offered as an online session via Zoom. You will receive the Zoom link the day before the session, in an email. On the day of the workshop, participants should log into their temple.zoom.us accounts in order to skip the waiting room. If participants are not Temple affiliates, they should use their first and last names in order to be admitted to the session. Participants do not need a video camera or a microphone, but will need an audio connection to hear the instructor.

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 and predatory conferences. Suggestions for finding reliable journals in which to publish are included.

Please contact Courtney Eger, courtney.eger@temple.edu, with any questions.
