DANGER! Predatory publishers

When looking for a conference or for a journal to submit your research, be aware of these predatory conferences and journals. Publishing with them is both economic and scientific fraud.

Junior academic faculty are particularly focused on opportunities to publish, given the importance tied to their promotion. They may, therefore, be most susceptible to academic spam emails (ASEs) from predatory publishers, which contain unsolicited requests for publishing manuscripts, presentations at organisation meetings and memberships on editorial boards. There have been documented instances of accepting flawed manuscripts or fake editorial board members” (Wilkinson et al, 2019)
