Registration Cost: $140 - Register on the Main Conference Registration Page

Offered in collaboration with the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP).

From the journals on Beall’s List to the controversy surrounding articles on sites such as SciHub, scholarly communication faces continuing challenges from a new set of players. Today’s researchers must publish to ensure their promotion and tenure, but the increasingly complex publishing space now leaves them in need of a new and different level of support. Librarians are in an ideal position to educate faculty and researchers about the information industry conversations taking place around predatory publishing practices,  “piracy,” and privacy, and how even seemingly innocuous actions (such as sharing a username and password)  can have negative implications for themselves and their universities.  As publishers look to new data privacy and authentication measures to protect user data and secure content, these trends will certainly affect their customers and ease of use for end-users.

Come learn about the multitude of ways that predatory publishers attempt to manipulate authors through fake journals, fictitious editorial boards, lack of peer review, and spurious article processing charges. Learn from publishers and library services professionals about the challenges of authentication and privacy along with new ways to ensure the integrity of scholarly communications. Starting with panel sessions and then moving to a roundtable discussion format, this practical session will provide you with concrete takeaways that you can use to educate and protect your patrons, along with information on what’s coming in terms of data and content protection.

As a CAE Approved Provider educational program related to the CAE exam content outline, this program may be applied for 4  credits toward your CAE application or renewal professional development requirements.
