Two new e-books on predatory publishers
The Library of Science has purchased the book Predatory Publishing as an e-book at the request of a staff member. Also, the book The Predator Effect: Understanding the Past, Present and Future of Deceptive Academic Journals can now be found in RUQuest.
Predatory publishers are "publishers" who abuse the open access publishing model to make money. They charge open access fees without organizing editorial services and peer review. You can read more about this and about the quality of open access journals on this web page.
Voor beide boeken geldt dat je ze zowel online kunt lezen, op de website van de uitgever, of kunt downloaden, in zijn geheel of per hoofdstuk. .
For both books, you can either read them online, on the publisher's website, or download them, either in full or by chapter. The book The Predator Effect: Understanding the Past, Present and Future of Deceptive Academic Journals is open access, but the book Predatory Publishing is not. If you want to refer to this book, for example in teaching materials, it is best to use a proxy link so that students can also access the book at home. You create a proxy link by putting the proxy prefix ( https://ru.idm.oclc.org/login?Url= ) in front of the link. So in this case: https://ru.idm.oclc.org/login?Url=https://doi.org/10.4324/9781003029335.
