Professional or Predatory?: Distinguishing Legitimate from Illegitimate in an Era of Open Access
Of interest to faculty who publish or present at conferences, this session examines the common practices and warning signs of predatory journals and conferences, along with readily available resources useful for avoiding predation and increasing the impact of your research. We will also discuss the Directory of Open Access Journals, a community-curated list that aims to be the starting point for all searches for quality, peer-reviewed, open access material, and SHERPA/RoMEO, an online aggregator and analyzer of publisher open access policies from around the world that provides summaries of self-archiving permissions and conditions of rights given to authors on a journal-by-journal basis.
