Engineering Faculty Guide to the Library: Scholarship & Publishing

Conferences & peer review

Not sure if a conference is using rigorous peer review to assess proposals? Ask me. We can do some research into the organization and/or associated publisher/s before you submit or register. Not all professional development opportunities, scholarly disseminators, etc., are equal.

Open Access: Pay for Publishing? Q&A

Q: Is the journal legitimate?

A: Look at the journal's website and the database Ulrichs Web. Check the Directory of Open Access Journals. See our Open Access Journal Quality Indicators.

Q: The publisher wants you to pay to publish your article?

A: Charging an author fee to defray costs of open access publishing is fairly common, and $200 is an example of a low fee. CSCE funds can now be used for publishing fees (called dissemination grants). Learn more info about open access publishing funds.
