Continuing Education and Events: 10/12 - Distinguishing the Questionable from the Trustworthy Webinar - Part 1

This guide contains current and upcoming events of interest to librarians, archivist, library staff, and others in Capital District Region.

Distinguishing the Questionable from the Trustworthy Webinar - Part 1

Note: This webinar is free open to all CDLC members, but is geared towards medical librarians.

There exists an ever-growing community of questionable open-access journals that lack peer review, tout low submission fees, and promise fast tracking of submissions for higher rates. Webinar participants will learn how the open access publishing model evolved, how the model lends itself to being exploited by predatory publishers, and how to use tools, resources, and formal criteria to vet open access journals.

Part 1 of the webinar focuses on open-access publishing models, with special attention paid to predatory publishing and methods of identifying questionable scholarly communications practices. Using the Committee on Publication Ethics', Principles of Transparency, participants are guided through an example journal to learn how to apply the criteria.
