Event description

Description

A January 2017 article in University Affairs wrote “Beware! Academics are getting reeled in scam journals”. The article highlighted some of the common fears and concerns surrounding publishing in today’s academic landscape.

This leads many graduate students and faculty to wonder: how can you tell what’s a credible publication or conference? Is this a legitimate solicitation to publish my thesis or a scam? This workshop will discuss predatory publishing, how to identify a legitimate publisher, what resources are available to help researchers on-campus as well as the common myths and perceptions surrounding Open Access.

In this workshop, Mylène Pinard and Alex Kohn (McGill Library team) will present us with strategies to detect and avoid predatory journals. There will be also a time reserved for Q&A and open discussion on the topic.

This event is open to everyone. It will take place on the Thomson House restaurant on Friday February 23rd at 4:00 pm. Snacks and coffee will be provided.

PGSS and APF executive.
McGill Library Communications team.
