Abstract: Predatory journals, publishers and conferences are those that use devious practices to solicit your scholarly work, and tempt you to publish or present in venues that may jeopardize your credibility as a serious scholar. Because their methods are evolving over time, it is helpful to have a refresher on how they operate and what resources exist to help you spot and avoid them.
