Fake Journals and Conferences: What to Know About the Faux

You’re understandably eager to publish your work in journals and present at conferences. But not all scholarly outlets are created equal—or even really created to disseminate peer-reviewed research. Fake or predatory journals and conferences exist for the sole purpose of profit, and frequently lie about their peer review practices and engage in other forms of deceit. Come learn how to spot these bad actors, and how to critically evaluate any journal or conference before submitting a paper or proposal.
