In February 2017 The University Campus Library launched the new free of charge service regarding uncovering journals with attributes of so called predatory journals. The service is provided exclusively to PhD students and researchers from CEITEC, Faculty of Sports Studies, Faculty of Medicine and departments of Faculty of Science situated in the University Campus Bohunice. Main principles of the service will be presented along with one year's worth of results.
