Each webinar will bring together IAP Working Group members, who are leading IAP’s study on these practices ( and other scientists in the region, in different disciplines and career stages, to discuss learning from the study and hear regional perspectives on predatory journals and conferences.

Interested participants are welcome to register for multiple sessions though some of the material will be common to all of them. There will be opportunities to submit questions to the speakers and panelists.

All researchers, as well as those in other related sectors (such as research funders and publishers, and libraries and indexing services) are encouraged to participate.
