Welcome to the 1st edition of the JournalsatUP Blog in 2013. The academic year is in full swing and the end of term and easter break is nearby.
There is an ever-increasing list of questionable open-access publishers and individual journals. Many do not identify their Editors or members of their Editorial Boards, they may appear to have addresses in the USA or UK, but are frequently operating out of India, Pakistan and African countries, and many of these journals have titles similar to well-respected journals. All manuscripts submitted to such journals are accepted, with the 'owners' of the journals then requesting a significant 'publication' payment from the authors
of such accepted papers.
Predatory journals uses deception to entice people. It is important for researchers and students to arm themselves with knowledge on how to identify a predatory journal. Jeffrey Beall a Librarian at Auraria Library, University of Colorado Denver has compiled a useful criteria to use to identify the predatory journal and a list of Predatory Journals known as the Beall's list
The theme for this year is educate yourself @ your library. UP Library services has lined up various events and workshops. For more information go to here
