Do you get emails inviting you to present at a conference, to be on the editorial board of a journal, or to author a book chapter? Do these emails refer to one of your recent papers by title? Do they come from publishers or organizations of which you have never heard?

It's a spamference!

In general,

  • if your university librarian has never heard of it, it's not okay.
  • if they guarantee your paper will get in (for a fee), it's not okay.
  • if you have never heard of the editors or organizers (or there aren't any), it's not okay.
