This series of five free webinars is designed to help researchers in their respective regions learn more about predatory academic practices and minimise their risk of using them.
The webinars will be hosted by the InterAcademy Partnership (IAP) with the Global Young Academy (GYA), the Association of Academies and Societies of Sciences in Asia (AASSA), the European Academies’ Science Advisory Council (EASAC), the Inter-American Network of Academies of Science (IANAS), the Network of African Science Academies (NASAC), and The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS).
Each webinar will bring together IAP Working Group members, who are leading IAP’s study on these practices (https://www.interacademies.org/project/predatorypublishing) and other scientists in the region, in different disciplines and career stages, to discuss learning from the study and hear regional perspectives on predatory journals and conferences.
The webinar in Africa, co-hosted by the Network of African Science Academies (NASAC), will be held on 24 November.
All researchers, as well as those in other related sectors (such as research funders and publishers, and libraries and indexing services) are encouraged to participate. More information and registration here.
