Part of the Faculty of Education Fall Faculty Career Development Workshop Series
With the rise of open access publishing, some publishers require authors to pay exorbitant fees as a way to finance their journals. Being savvy about predatory open access publishers and author fees are part of the scholarly landscape. Should scholars pay such fees? Are they legitimate research expenses? Come to this workshop, to determine the best publishing outlets for your research. Explore key strategies and UBC Library resources available to help you find top journals and reputable publishers. We’ll talk about journal impact factors, indexing, peer review, publication frequency, open access, author rights and self-archiving.
Be sure to bring your publishing questions and stories to share.
