Upon entering the Sigma eLearning Platform, search for the keyword "Podcast".This episode we will be discussing doctoral education in nursing. The discussion will center around the need for doctoral education and discuss several types of terminal degrees often seen in nursing. This episode we will be discussing how to avoid publishing in predatory journals and at predatory conferences. Avoiding predatory journals is relatively easy yet, as evidenced by the predatory journal websites, academics do publish in them. Avoiding predatory conferences is also easy, but we continue to hear about academics who respond to their ingratiating invitations. Since the demise of Beall’s list, there is no single and easily accessible repository of information on predatory publishers and predatory conferences. Beyond, but possibly related to, the predatory publishing ‘industry’ is the creation of false websites to lure people into submitting and paying, in good faith, to have manuscripts processed, never to see their manuscript published. Unwary academics also need to know how to detect and avoid these. Episode Details Host: Matthew S. Howard, DNP, RN, CEN, CPEN, CPN, Director of Scholarship Resources at Sigma.
