REd Online: Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) Orientation

REd Online: Predatory Journals

This course will introduce you to the emergence of online, predatory journals. These journals are started by publishers who seek to defraud you as an author by utilizing fake editors and peer-reviewers. Much of the content they publish is of poor-quality and even erroneous. They have been known to list people's names as editors or board members without their knowledge or consent. They also seek to make money by charging authors as they submit manuscripts to their publishing sites.
