About the Event
This webinar will help those who work with researchers offer straightforward advice to help them avoid publishing in places that they would want to avoid.
1. Lorraine will cover what predatory publishing is and why it is a problem. How the scams that predatory publishers use are becoming more sophisticated and difficult to detect.
2. Lorraine will walk the delegates through Think. Check. Submit. and show them how to use it as a tool to help librarians and researchers avoid predatory publishers.
3. Katherine will provide practical examples of how she has used the principles of Think. Check. Submit when helping researchers think about where to publish. She will provide examples of how lack of some due diligence has led to some difficulties with regards to invoices from predatory publishers, and how this can be avoided in the future.
