Combatting Predatory Academic Journals and Conferences Working Group meetings in June 2021


The Working Group (WG) of the IAP project Combatting Predatory Academic Journals and Conferences met multiple times virtually in June 2021 to discuss important milestones in report writing. Members were encouraged to attend separate sessions after reviewing the report draft and discuss how to fine-tune the main points, evidence, and style to ensure a quality product. 

WG members have engaged in several outreach events as well, such as the GUIRR Presentation on Money for nothing: predatory practices in academic journals and conferences, hosted by the U.S. National Academies. A recording of the webinar can be found here. The project will continue to highlight its work with key stakeholders worldwide.
