Important Notice Predatory Publishing

Dear Research Students,

Unfortunately we have become aware that a UAL student has been the target of predatory organisations purporting to be reputable journal publishers and offering to publish work for a fee. These organisations target people working in research and education, and will approach people making presentations at conferences, inviting them to convert their presentation into a scholarly article for a (bogus) journal, at a cost.

If you are contacted by one of these ‘publishers’ please do not engage in correspondence. Do not give them any personal information. And do not give them any money.

If you are unsure as to whether you have been approached by a bona fide academic journal please contact UAL Research Online (ualresearchonline@arts.ac.uk)
