Digital Natives Seminar: Open Access, Predatory Publishing, & Constellation

Date: March 15

Time: 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM

Campus: Lisle

Location: Kindlon Hall 311

Event Sponsor: Benedictine University Library

Contact: Joan Hopkins    (630) 829-6052    jhopkins@ben.edu

Event Description:

Open access journals and institutional repositories benefit the scholarly community. But open access has also opened the door to predatory publishing. Often, predatory journals use convincing titles and list prominent academics on their editorial boards without permission, making it difficult to distinguish them from legitimate journals. How can you ensure that your research appears in quality open access journals with reputable publishers?  

Join archivist Katy Scullin and librarian Sarah Kurpiel as they provide an introduction to open access publishing, outline strategies for identifying predatory publishers and journals, and demonstrate how to deposit publications in BenU’s open access institutional repository, Constellation. 

Open to all BenU faculty, graduate students, and academic staff.

Bring your lunch.
