PAGES is organizing and hosting an online webinar on "Ethics in publishing and combatting predatory practices in science", with Dr. Ramón Feenstra (Universitat Jaume I de Castelló, Spain) and Dr. Asfawossen Asrat Kassaye (Botswana International University of Science and Technology, Botswana) and as speakers on 7 September 2023 at 14:00 UTC.


Speaking from their experiences on research ethics in universities, and as part of international academic organizations, Dr Feenstra and Dr Asrat Kassaye will provide their views on ethical implications of current publishing models and the impact of predatory journals and conferences, respectively. 

Dr Asrat Kassaye is a geologist and former PAGES SSC (2016-2021). He is also part of the InterAcademy Partnership (IAP) Project on Combatting Predatory Academic Journals and Conferences which led to the first comprehensive report on the subject, published in 2022. The fields Dr Feenstra writes about are linked primarily to democracy theory and communication ethics, including articles and book chapters about research integrity. Currently he is a member of the European Project Catalisi.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A session. Both the talk and Q&A session will be recorded and available afterwards on the PAGES YouTube channel.
