Fit or Fraud: How to Screen for Questionable Articles

Thursday, July 23, 2020, from 3–4 p.m. via Blackboard

Don’t base your research on somebody else’s fraud! The number of scholarly articles retracted for research misconduct has been increasing sharply, as has the number of ‘scholarly’ publishers with little or no quality control or peer review. Basing your research on fraudulent papers can result in your own findings being invalidated, your work being retracted, or worse. While it’s impossible to identify all questionable research papers, this workshop will show you some tools and strategies to avoid as many as possible.

This workshop is open to undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty. Register here.
