Scholarly Communication 101: Choosing the Right Conferences, Journals and Publishers
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Location: Malpass Library, 3rd Floor Computer Classroom
Description: Each Department at WIU has their own criteria for tenure, including attending and speaking at conferences, publishing articles in peer-reviewed journals or writing books. Finding an appropriate venue for scholarly communication, whether it be a conference, journal or book publisher, can be difficult. Journals are especially problematic because of the growth of "predatory" journals and publishers, which publish anything submitted (for a fee) without adequate peer-review. This session will provide information on identifying and choosing an appropriate conference, book publisher and journal for publication, including the possibility of publishing in Open Access journals.
