In the framework of continuous collaboration between the Quality, Accountability, Integrity, and Transparency (QAINT) project and public universities in Kosovo to address the needs at the institutional level toward developing and implementing advanced academic procedures and practices, as defined by the new legislation and regulations, today was held the first part of the three-day workshop titled: A Discussion on Suspicious-Predatory Journals and Disputable Conferences, with the academic staff of the University Haxhi Zeka in Peja. The workshop aims to provide a clear summary of dubious journals and disputable conferences, with tips and suggestions for young academics on how they can avoid them. During the discussion, the participants raised some issues that will be discussed in the forthcoming meetings and / or will serve as a guide to explore other ways of collaboration between higher education institutions in Kosovo and the QAINT project.
The QAINT project is funded by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA), with the contribution of the Ministry of Education, Science, Technology, and Innovation (MESTI) and is implemented by the KEC, ORCA and ZSI consortium.
