SEAside Webinar: Issues in Predatory Publishing - How Can Librarians Lead the Way?
Presentation Summary: Helping potential authors understand the murky waters of Open Access and Scholarly Communication is becoming a necessary task. By providing relevant support, librarians can assist people in making the right decisions about where to publish so that they don't become victims of fraudulent publishers, or worse, tarnish their academic reputation. In this webinar, hear about one librarian's struggle to empower researchers to go forth with their journal submissions without falling prey to opportunistic and predatory publishers. Tools discussed can assist researchers and potential authors with evaluating journal quality, selecting the appropriate journal for their research, and knowing their rights as authors. Discussion will center around the benefits and pitfalls of these tools, how to empower authors to make the right decisions through instruction and information dissemination, and what this kind of support might look like going forward.
