Assessing Journal Legitimacy. Oct 23, Noon, Teaching Lab 3

Have you received email solicitations to publish in a journal you’ve never heard of?  Are you considering a journal for a paper you wrote but not sure if it’s legitimate?

Join us during Open Access Week Oct 22-28 for a presentation on predatory publishing. We’ll explain what it’s about and contrast this practice with legitimate open access publishing.  We’ll also provide you with a checklist that will help you assess the legitimacy of a journal or publisher.  Tuesday, October 23, noon, in the Health Sciences Library Teaching Lab 3.
