In the past ten to fifteen years, some changes have taken place in publishing. However, for every scientist it is still important to make science visible, to share and discuss results even under changing conditions. Unfortunately, however, there are also some dubious players in the field of science journals who circumvent current standards in order to maximise their profits. The term "predatory publishing" is used to describe the way in which research results are published without complying with the defined quality assurance measures.

The seminar will introduce you to techniques on how to identify dubious providers of journals and conferences. Within the course of this seminar participants will increase their sensitivity towards dubious offers. Moreover we will discuss what challenges are associated with Open Access publications.
