The webinar workshops will be presented via ASSAf, using BigBlueButton. Minimum requirements: Stable Internet access, speakers. More details will be communicated to registered participants closer to the time.

How to identify questionable journals? (Friday 17 November, 10:00 - 11:00):
After the closure of Beall's list, there are still many ways to identify journals that publish low quality research without meeting basic publishing standards.

Open Peer Review (Friday 24 November 2017, 10:00 - 11:00):
To address problems with the peer-review process, many journals have experimented with different types of peer-review models. Open peer review was adopted by several journals in order to encourage transparency in the process, and there are now a number of different ways in which this is implemented. This webinar will provide an overview of the different peer review processes which exist, and will demonstrate how the post-publication open-peer review model is implemented on articles published in F1000Research and associated platforms.

The workshop details are as follows:
