Beyond the List: Unpacking the Predatory Publisher

Contact: Catherine Smith
Contact: 608-890-1334 - Midwest region
The overall goal of this program is to enable learners to think in a deep way about how librarians can evaluate the published biomedical literature they find and make decisions about quality. I do this by focusing on a real-life situation: the “predatory publisher” scenario. Both practicing librarians and their patrons are affected by the predatory phenomenon in important ways, and I hope to equip librarians to deal with the phenomenon to empower themselves as information professionals and authors alike.
