“Dear esteemed author:” …

Have you received an email promising to publish your research article or conference presentation in an exciting new journal to great accolades?  So-called predatory publishers exploit researchers’ need to disseminate research results with flattery and false assurances.  In this session, we’ll examine ways to assess the credibility of a publisher and/or journal.  We’ll discuss tools to help you evaluate a prospective journal, select an appropriate journal for your research and understand your rights as a author.
