Scholarly Communication: Evaluating Publishers

This guide describes services of Milner Library's scholarly communication program, and provides links to resources related to academic publishing, copyright, and open educational content.

Predatory Publishing

Predatory or deceptive publishing is a business model in which publishers exploit researchers’ need to publish as part of the tenure and promotion process. These publishers charge authors submission and/or publication fees and while the article will probably get “published” online, it also won’t receive quality peer review or editing.
