An Education Session Developed in Response to Low Health Professional Awareness of Predatory Journals
Predatory journals have arisen as a significant problem within scholarly literature and efforts to raise awareness about them have focused on researchers looking to publish their work. Because health professionals use scholarly literature to inform their practice, develop policy, and conduct their own research, they should be familiar with the harmfulness of predatory journals. This paper describes an education session delivered to health professionals throughout the province of X. Developed in response to health professionals’ low awareness of predatory journals, it was designed to raise awareness and to provide tools and techniques to critically appraise the scholarly literature.
