Continuing Resources Standards Forum

Saturday, January 25, 2014
10:30 am to 11:30 am, US/Eastern

To begin the forum, Nettie Lagace (Associate Director for Programs, NISO) will provide a short update about the new/updated Recommended Practices for PIE-J, KBART, and Open Discovery Initiative (ODI). Following this update, the session program will focus on predatory publishing. Rick Anderson (Associate Dean for Scholarly Resources & Collections, University of Utah) will provide an overview of the concept of “predatory publishing,” explaining the background, the manifestations of predation that are out there currently, and some of the controversies surrounding Jeffrey Beall’s list of predatory publishers. Regina Romano Reynolds (Director, U.S. ISSN Center and head of the ISSN Section, Library of Congress) will follow with a discussion of how the U.S. ISSN Center and the international ISSN Network are dealing with this issue.
