Don’t Pay to Have an Underground Paper Mill Write Your Journal Article (and Other Research Tips!)

This is a past event.

Virtual Event

Writing a research paper is challenging enough, but the online world presents a number of potential land mines that could be damaging to your work and to your reputation. Predatory journals are a serious problem. Do you know what they are? Do you know how to identify and avoid them? Copyright infringement is another common problem. How do you know when something is copyright protected or when it is free to use? Website credibility is yet another problem. Special interest groups spend a lot of money to further their causes by creating websites that appear credible and unbiased but are, in fact, uncredible, and biased. How can you spot these sites? This presentation hopes to provide some useful tools for identifying some problematic online issues that will ultimately result in better research.

Presented by Jeff Teitelbaum, Forensic Research Librarian for the Global Forensic and Justice Center.

Statement of Free Expression

FIU endorses the Florida Board of Governors' Statement of Free Expression to support and encourage full and open discourse and the robust exchange of ideas and perspectives on our campuses. In addition to supporting this legal right, we view this as an integral part of our ability to deliver a high-quality academic experience for our students, engage in meaningful and productive research, and provide valuable public service. This includes fostering civil and open dialogue in support of critical thinking in and out of the classroom, including events hosted by the university.
