Awareness Campaign on 'Predatory' Publishing

October 2, 2015

A coalition of publishers and library associations on Thursday launched Think. Check. Submit. -- an awareness campaign meant to prevent researchers from publishing their work in "predatory" journals. The launch coincides with a report that suggests the number of articles published in those journals increased almost tenfold between 2010 and 2014. The campaign, which is supported by organizations such as the Association of Learned & Professional Society Publishers and publishers such as BioMed Central, directs researchers to resources that help them ensure they are submitting their work to journals recognized by the publishing community.
