      Optimise Medical Publishing and Avoid "Predatory Journals" Janet Galliera, Executive Director Business Development, PubsHub, an ICON plc company Recorded: May 9 2017 2:30 pm UTC 52 mins
    • Open access journals are scholarly publications, available across the internet. They are freely accessible, with no subscription costs. From 2012 to 2017, the number of open access journals increased from 4,034 to 9,405. [1]

      While open access journals bring clear cost and accessibility advantages, it is important for authors to be able to accurately assess the quality and reputation of any potential publisher.

      What are predatory publishers?
      Predatory publishers are profiteering individuals or companies, who use the open access publishing model to take advantage of and exploit authors, by charging them article processing fees without providing the high quality editorial services associated with legitimate journals [2]. The term “predatory publisher” was first coined by Jeffrey Beall, who tracked them on his Scholarly Open Access blog from 2012 until January 2017.

      Speakers: Jeffrey Beall, Scholarly Communications Librarian and Associate Professor, University of Colorado Denver; Janet Galliera, Executive Director Business Development, PubsHub, an ICON plc company; Nicolle Watts,
