Digging deeper into peer review scams 

Thursday 14th September, 13:30 UTC

Sneha Kulkarni has over seven years’ experience of working with authors. Her passion to bridge the communication gap in the research community led her to her current role of developing and designing content for researchers and authors. She writes original discussion and comment articles that provide researchers and publishers a platform to voice their opinion. Sneha likes to keep abreast of the latest developments and trends in the publishing industry and publishes content that helps researchers, publishers, and industry experts as well to stay ahead of the curve. Her interest in understanding the malpractices rampant in academia and ways to counter them led her to publish a paper in Learned Publishing titled “What causes peer review scams and how can they be prevented?” (DOI 10.1002/leap.1031). The complete list of her published content can be found here: http://www.editage.com/insights/users/sneha-kulkarni.
