ENRESSH Webinar: Renewing the journal market: the risk of quasi-predatory journal publishing

By |

ENRESSH is happy to announce the following ENRESSH webinar:

Monday, 7th November 2022 from 2-3pm CET (via zoom, see below).

Title of the Webinar: Renewing the journal market: the risk of quasi-predatory journal publishing

Input presentation 1:
Title: Predators for some, rational choice for others: a geopolitical perspective on questionable academia
Speaker: Emanuel Kulczycki, Adam Mieckiewicz University, Poznań, Poland
Abstract: My talk aims to show that “predatory journals” are easy-to-use labels to name complex and multidimensional practices in scholarly communication. In fact, these practices are the result of unequal power relations across central and semi-peripheral countries and institutions. I will argue that what is often named predatory publishing by the so-called Global North is—at the same time—a rational way of communicating research results following the science policy of a particular (semi-)peripheral country that wants to “get along with the center.”

Input presentation 2:
Title: Risks and Opportunities of Innovations in Editorial Procedures
Speaker: Serge Pascal Johannes M. Horbach, Aarhus University, Poland
Abstract: A plethora of innovations to reform journal editorial procedures are on their way, including moves towards more open and transparent practices, quests for automation and changing roles of actors involved. While having the potential to improve the editorial process, some come with the risk of jeopardising the integrity and quality of both the review process and published record. This talk will address such risks and opportunities by sharing experiences on guest editing a Frontiers journal.

The two short input presentations will be followed by 30 minutes of discussion and exchanges.
