[#OAW15SF in Video] Publish or Perish: How to Avoid Predatory Publishers & Conferences

Marcus Banks and Anneliese Taylor offer tips on not becoming prey for the predators of scholarly publishing.

“This is such an important topic, it takes two of us,” claims Marcus Banks as he and fellow university librarian Anneliese Taylor open their presentation. He jokes, but researchers have to work harder today to avoid inadvertently winding up in journals or at conferences where they’d rather not be. The pair offers tips to help you navigate the choppy waters of “publish or perish” without falling prey to the disreputable characters of scholarly publishing.
