Open Access Publishing and Predatory Publishers Webinar

Open Access Publishing and Predatory Publishers
Facilitated by Allison Galloup, Assistant Professor, Library Science.
Wednesday, April 11, 2018

12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.

For more information and to register for the workshop, email CTLL@ung.edu. You get an email from a journal soliciting submissions, but you’ve never heard of the journal. What do you do? The journal claims to be Open Access but what does that mean? Should you trust the unknown publisher? Maybe you have seen recent articles about Academia.edu, ResearchGate, or Sci-Hub and aren’t sure what those sites are or why it’s a problem for authors to publish their work on sites like these. The final workshop in the series will examine Open Access publishing and where/how you can publish materials Open Access. This session will also briefly cover Creative Commons licensing and the levels of Open Access. We will also look at predatory publishers and piracy sites and talk about how you can protect yourself and your work. This session is meant to build on the previous two sessions, but attendance at the previous workshops are not mandatory.
