Event Description: 

Magnifying glass looking at a page from a journal, image by NiabotHave you received a mysterious invitation to publish in a journal you haven't heard of? Did someone read that paper you co-authored two years ago and is now asking you to contribute to a special issue? Are you seeking a journal for your article? Wondering what makes a journal "open access"? 

Bring your case to the Journal Inspectors. They will help you avoid journal scams and identify quality journals for your scholarship. You can also help the Journal Inspectors by identifying fake publication outlets that prey on unassuming scholars and spread the word. Find the Journal Inspectors at a table on the ground floor of Hillman Library near the Donald S. Wood Service Desk.
