Fake Journals and Conferences: What to Know about the Faux

March 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Scholarly Communication Workshop Series logo

As a researcher, you are eager to publish your work in journals and present at conferences. But don’t let your eagerness allow you to be fooled by fake (often called “predatory”) journals or conferences. These low-quality outlets exist for the sole purpose of profit, not for the dissemination of peer-reviewed research. Indeed, they frequently lie about their peer review practices and engage in other forms of deceit. Come learn how to spot these bad actors, and how to critically evaluate any journal or conference before submitting a paper or proposal.

This workshop is part of the Scholarly Communication Essentials workshop series. It is geared toward the Graduate Center community but open to everyone at CUNY.
