UG and UMCG authors falling prey to fraudulent/predatory publishing practices

24 June 2021

Predatory publishers can usually be recognized by their aggressive marketing strategies and spam emails. Yet, these journals and their invitations may look legitimate at first sight.

The open access support teams of the University Library and Central Medical Library have recently come across four cases of predatory/fraudulent publishing behaviour at the expense of UG/UMCG authors.

In our Open Science Blog we outline the cases (anonymously and with permission of the authors involved) in the hope that this will help others avoid similar circumstances in the future.
