A warning to be careful with predatory publishers

— As member of the scientific community, you are often contacted by predatory publishers to publish your research or to present it at questionable conferences. It is very important that you do not respond to these solicitations. These publishers do not guarantee any quality or scientific integrity. Peer-review, proofreading and editing steps are usually scarce and the manuscript is often immediately published after submission. The publication of your research in these journals has very little scientific value and can damage your reputation and that of EPFL.
