New guide on predatory and questionable publishing practices

22 April 2024
New guide

Questionable and predatory publishers abuse the open access model by collecting Article Processing Charges (APCs) without providing proper editorial and peer-review services. How can authors recognise and avoid these journals? What can authors do if they have published with a questionable or predatory publisher? Open access specialists at universities across the Netherlands have written a guide that provides insight and practical advice for authors.

Other guides in this series
A series of open science guides help researchers in the Netherlands navigate open science. They cover topics such as pre-prints, open licenses, questionable publication practices, and how to apply open science in practice.

All guides are open access and are available via the open repository Zenodo. For ease of reference, we have gathered the guides on the Open Science Blog.
