Lunch provided, please register for this event.

Join us for an informal presentation and discussion about the alarming increase of predatory publishing and other scams. This session will focus on the quality and integrity of the publishing process, responsible editorial policies, transparency & ethical manuscript review, and things authors should look out for when assessing a journal. Presenters will share resources on both the potentials and pitfalls of open access publishing and where to go for additional information when it comes time to publish your research. This session is open to all members of the university community, i.e., faculty, postdocs, and graduate students. Learn more about this topic.
