Predatory publishing is a growing concern in scholarly research for both content creators and researchers. Predatory publishers deceive authors and readers by publishing their research for a fee without providing the editorial services typical of vetted open access publishers such as rigorous peer review, yet often masquerade in trusted databases and web sources as legitimate journals. Join us in Cooper Library for a workshop on the rise and impact of predatory publishing, how to identify predatory publications, and how to avoid using and submitting to these decidedly non-scholarly sources.
