The Chronic Problem of Predatory Journals

I’ve blogged about the topic of predatory journals before, and not much has changed. But as a grant writer/editor/applicant, the more you know the better you can navigate the issue when presenting your biosketch and selecting appropriate citations. At the end of July, AMWA-EMWA-ISMPP* released a joint position statement on predatory publishing and its “threat both to researchers publishing the results of their work and to the peer-reviewed medical literature itself.” You can read the full statement in Current Medical Research and Opinion here.
*AMWA – American Medical Writers Association
EMWA – European Medical Writers Association
ISMPP – International Society for Medical Publication Professionals
