Predatory Publishers

Peer-reviewed (scholarly) journals are the gold standard for reliable information. But the recent rise of predatory publishers is leading to confusion (Bohannon 2013).

Predatory publication editors accept articles indiscriminately without rigorous reviews or fact-checking. Their typical business model is to print a range of open-access journals that collect publication fees from authors.

Before you publish in or cite a journal, it's wise to review the Think.Check.Submit. guidelines and check Cabell's whitelist:


General San Diego Zoo Global Library Copyright Notice
Most material available on the internet is protected by copyright law, including both freely available resources and subscription databases available through the San Diego Zoo Global Library. Copyright applies even when a statement of copyright is not clearly visible on a website or other resource. The San Diego Zoo Global library upholds and abides by United States copyright law (Title 17, U.S. Code), including sections 107 and 108 governing fair use and reproduction by libraries and archives. Patrons using library resources—including copiers, scanners, and printers—are responsible for any infringements to copyright law.

The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
