Continuing Education and Events: 10/30 - Distinguishing the Questionable from the Trustworthy Webinar - Part 2

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 2

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 2 of the webinar delves deeper into distinguishing likely safe journals from likely predatory ones and explores the consequences of publishing in a predatory journal. Participants will learn how the differences among MEDLINE, PubMed, and PubMed Central relate to potential predatory journals and about resources to facilitate scholarly publishing (e.g., Journal/Author Name Estimator [Jane]) and journal metrics (e.g., Journal Citation Reports). Presenters will offer proactive tips and solutions on how attendees can address the problem of questionable open access practices for researchers and scholars at their own institutions.
