A warning to authors

1999_W156The University of Sydney recognises the importance of publishing research findings and the pressure on researchers to do so. However, the Library wishes to advise the researchers of the University to take care if they are approached with an unsolicited offer to publish their research or thesis. There are a number of “predatory” publishers out there taking advantage of the Open Access movement and early career researcher’s desire to publish.

As a result of this we have updated the information on the Publish your research website to highlight this issue.

If you are approached with an unsolicited offer to publish your research or have any questions about such an offer to publish contact your Faculty Liaison Librarian.
