Open Access Basics: Is that a Predatory Publisher?
This session will provide information about open access publishing, detail the reasons for the open access publishing movement, and describe key elements of predatory publishers. A process often used by UI Librarians to critically evaluate the quality of open access journals will be shared, to allow participants to improve their skills/efficiency with appraisal. Information about open access mandates will be included, as well as an overview of how the UI Libraries Open Access Fund works.
