Are you confused about different models of Open Access publishing? Are you wondering if Open Access journals are trustworthy? Are you trying to locate a legitimate Open Access journal to submit your manuscript? In this workshop, we will talk about what Open Access is, why you should consider publishing in an Open Access journal, how to evaluate a reputable publisher, and how to differentiate predatory journals and publishers.

This 30-minute workshop will cover three author IDs — ORCID, Google Scholar, and Scopus. We will discuss the differences among them and why they can help boost your research impact. The workshop will be followed by a 30-minute open session to give you time to try the tools introduced in the Author IDs workshop and allow you to ask individual questions about your author IDs.
