Cabells introduces two new important features: the Journal Blacklist, the only blacklist of deceptive and predatory academic journals, and Altmetric Reports, a measurement of journal media mention data. Join us to learn more about these and other key resources while getting familiar with the new Cabells brand identity and website interface.
Join Cabells Senior Project Manager Lucas Toutloff who will present the following:
•A demonstration of the Journal Whitelist — our curated, searchable database of over 11,000 journals covering 18 disciplines — connecting researchers, librarians, and administrators to verified, reputable publications. Backed by our newly designed journal summaries presenting our suite of journal quality metrics, now including Altmetric Reports.
•A demonstration of our newly released Journal Blacklist, the industry's only data-driven listing of likely deceptive or fraudulent academic journals. Built on objectivity and transparency, specialists analyze journals against over 60 behavioral indicators to keep the community abreast of the growing threats and to keep researchers protected from exploitative operations.
•An introduction to the new Cabells brand identity, website interface and features, and redesigned journal entries.
Open access publishing has grown dramatically in the last five years. However, as with many paradigm shifts, there are growing pains associated, including predatory journal practices and lack of clarity around terms and options.
In this live webinar, three presenters will guide librarians through the OA publishing landscape, discussing key issues librarians should raise with their researchers. Librarians will be able to help their researchers take advantage of OA publishing for discovery and dissemination of their own research, while concurrently ensuring that scholars make informed choices.
• Ethical and non-ethical OA publishing approaches
• Tools to assess OA journal quality
• Data sources for OA and the role of institutional repositories
• Open does not mean indexed - visibility and quality considerations
