Event Description

Full Description:
Topic: Knowing the impact of your publications

Knowing the impact of your papers can give you the edge when applying for grants and promotion. This session will provide a brief introduction to metrics that show the impact of your publications, including how to establish your researcher identity. Presented by Elisha Bignell. Elisha Bignell is a librarian with the research output and impact team providing support for publication metrics and research data management.

Predatory Publishing

There are currently approximately 28,000 journals publishing 1.5 million papers annually. Although the majority of new journals are legitimate, the credentials of some are questionable. Such journals and publishers are referred to as 'predatory'. They commonly send spam emails to potential authors, solicit submissions and request payment of article processing charges, but lack academic rigor or credibility. This presentation is aimed at RHD students and Early Career Researchers and will look at examples of publishers, publications and provide practical tips to identify and avoid predatory publishers. Presented by Sharon Bunce from the Scholarly Publishing Team in UQ Library’s Scholarly Communication and Repository Service.
