Short description : In our presentation, we will talk first about the phenomenon of predatory publishers; we will present the characteristics of their dishonest and often illegal business model and show some schemes of recognizing and avoiding publishing at predators. Then, we will discuss a new emerging challenge for scholarly publishing that is the identity fraud of scientific journals: hijacked journals. Those two phenomena might endanger the integrity of scholarly communication by violating the reliability of scholarly publications and hence, deform the image of science and influence badly your research career. Join us to equip yourself with a knowledge shield that will protect you against scammers!
