With the upsurging, “Publish or Perish” culture in academia, researchers are under continuous pressure to publish their study in high-impact factor journals. Some opportunistic publishing venues take undue advantage of this vulnerability of researchers and exploit them for financial gains. Cases of researchers falling prey to predatory publishing have increased at an alarming rate over the past few years. This has resulted in the absolute necessity for researchers to be aware of the warning signs and recognize the predatory publishers/journals while choosing the journal. Enago in collaboration with Cabells, a world-class scholarly services provider keeping authors acquainted with accurate and up-to-date information about academic journals, conducted this webinar to provide authors an overview of predatory publishing practices and share useful tips to avoid and deal with it effectively.
Through this webinar, researchers will learn:
- Overview of predatory publishing
- How to identify predatory publishers/journals
- Best practices to avoid predatory journals
- How to deal with predatory publishers/journals
Cabells started over 40 years ago as a directory of recommended business and management journals. Now, Cabells has expanded its services to include systems for identifying both Whitelist and Blacklist journals, manuscript preparation tools, and a suite of powerful metrics to help its users find the right journals, no matter what stage of their career.
