Predatory journals are the bane of academia. Their priority lies in making a profit rather than scholarly integrity or publishing standard.

Learn more about their history, the problems they cause, and how to identify and avoid them for publishing and referencing in your research in the “Predatory Publishers” session on March 2 at 12:00 PM (CT).

Head to the U of M Event Calendar for more information and registration link!

This session is part of the Open Science Series, which seeks to provide an overview of open science, open access, predatory publishers, open data, open science & the public, and open tools & initiatives you can use throughout your research.
