Event description

Description

Predatory publishers are ‘fake journals’ that only exist to exploit academics for money. These can be extremely damaging to science, as they publish pretty much anything without verifying the research. Learn how to spot a predatory publisher in this session to make sure you’re not misled by fake science!
