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


The Working Group (WG) of the IAP project Combatting Predatory Academic Journals and Conferences met virtually in March 2021 to discuss results from both the global survey on perceptions of predatory practices and a sample of journals with violations supported by Cabells. WG members provided their perspectives on the strengths and limitations of the findings utilizing their respective expertise and familiarity with different regions of the world.

The WG will now work on their thematic areas and corresponding narratives to develop into the first phase of report writing, which is set to release in early 2022, alongside developing emerging recommendations and conclusions.
