The webinar connects to the new report “Combatting Predatory Academic Journals and Conferences” released by IAP, InterAcademy Partnership. The research sector has become increasingly vulnerable to overt commercial predation. As academic and publishing business models, research evaluation and peer-review systems continue to evolve, they are susceptible to exploitation and malpractice. Driven by profit and self-interest, the extent of this predation is on the rise. It risks polluting the global research enterprise, with serious implications for research quality and integrity; wasting research funding, derailing research careers, and compromising evidence-based policy decisions. The new IAP report was released the 16th of March and sets out recommendations for a global, systemic action plan to address these pervasive and damaging practices. Participants: - Stefan Eriksson, member of the IAP expert group and associate professor in research ethics, Uppsala University - Gustaf Nelhans, senior lecturer at the Swedish School of Library and Information Science, University of Borås - Anna Dreber Almenberg, Johan Björkman professor of economics, Stockholm School of Economics, Member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences - Lynn Kamerlin, professor of structural biology, Uppsala University - Bo Söderström, associate professor, editor-in-chief for Ambio, a journal of environment and society published by The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences together with Springer Nature
