© 2019, Nature Publishing Group. All rights reserved. The science and practice of dentistry are underpinned by research and clinical developments that have been evaluated rigorously before being presented to the profession in peer-reviewed journals or at national and international meetings. The online platform that supports open access journals has been corrupted by the emergence of so-called ‘predatory journals’, which accept papers on payment of a significant publication fee. This practice has now extended to dental conferences and this article describes the author’s personal views of predatory conferences.
