Notes on predatory publishing for doctoral candidates


Note from the university library regarding the submission of printed copies of doctoral theses:  Due to archive requirements, the library requires 4 printed copies printed on durable, acid-free non-wood paper that is well-bound (no spiral binding, no staples, no metal rails, etc.).  Soft cover publication (i.e. cardboard cover with glued binding) is sufficient. Please also inform yourself here.
