Predatory Conferences : The Dark Side Of Fake Conferences And Publishing

Predatory Conferences : The Dark Side Of Fake Conferences And Publishing

April 15, 2019

Predatory conferences or predatory meetings are meetings set up to appear as legitimate scientific conferences but which are exploitative as they do not provide proper editorial control over presentations, and advertising can include claims of involvement of prominent academics who are, in fact, uninvolved. They are an expansion of the predatory open access publishing business model, which involves the creation of academic publications built around an exploitative business model that generally involves charging publication fees to authors without providing the editorial and publishing services associated with legitimate journals. In this episode we talk to Jeffrey Beall author of "The Bealls List" a compilation of predatory conferences and publishers. Host Ersilia Pompilio shares her nutty hair-brained tale of attending a "Predatory Conference: San Diego Nursing Leadership 2018" under cover for a journalistic assignment.

Our guest Jeffrey Beall worked for 28 years as an academic librarian and retired in 2018. Over the course of his career, his research interests included bibliographic database quality and scholarly publishing. He coined the term predatory publisher in 2010, alerting researchers in all fields to the problem of counterfeit, scholarly open-access journals and the threat they pose to scientific integrity.

January 28, 2019

It was the number one Googled diet in 2018, and it's creating a social media craze! the Ketogenic diet has been around since 500 BC with Hippocrates preaching about intermittent fasting. At the turn of the 20th century, the diet was used to treat diabetics who had type 1 diabetes, and in 1920 it was found to help decrease seizure activity in people who had epilepsy. But is this diet causing people on social media to go crazy? Some say they've lost a ton of weight, have gained mental clarity, and have more energy! Others claim it's unsafe? And what's the difference between ketosis and ketoacidosis?

Our guests Ben Morgan an ICU nurse in the Air Force stationed in Alaska. He’s been a nurse for 8 years. He’s been experimenting with different diets for most of his adult life. He’s tried vegetarian, vegan, paleo, and keto among others. He’s been mostly keto for almost 2 years, and recently mostly carnivore.
