Open Access & Predatory Publishing: The Good, the Bad, and Beware

Open Access & Predatory Publishing: The Good, the Bad, and Beware

Join us in celebrating Open Access Week!

Predatory or deceptive publishing are terms describing publishers that exploit authors by charging publication fees (commonly known as article processing charges) yet don’t deliver on their promise of the editorial and publishing services (such as peer review) that are associated with legitimate publishers. Deceptive publishers typically prey on a researcher’s need to publish in order to get an academic appointment, gain promotion, or achieve tenure.

Learn the basics about predatory publishing, how to identify trusted journals, and tips for avoiding the predatory ones.
