“Predatory” publishing, especially in the health sciences, is a growing concern and avoiding it is crucial to a researcher’s career. It is important, though, not to oversimplify what constitutes predatory practices. While using tools like “blocked” or “approved” lists helps researchers avoid predatory publishers, these lists can reinforce power dynamics that exclude marginalized, non-western viewpoints. Come to this session to learn how to balance publishing in high quality journals while staying aware of the biases in scholarly publishing.
