Presentation Summary: The rise of open accessing publishing has brought with it many advantages, including faster publication and enhanced visibility and impact of one’s research. However, along with its benefits, the publishing model has also seen significant abuses. The issues of what constitutes reliable and scholarly from potentially predatory and fraudulent grows more complicated every day. With the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Public Access Policy, a significant number of open access contributions have been deposited in PubMed Central, making this a relevant concern for those working in the health sciences and biomedical fields. This session will explore the relationship between MEDLINE, PubMed Central, and PubMed and the implications of questionable citations from potentially predatory journals in PubMed search results.

She is a member of the Georgia Health Sciences Library Association (GHSLA) and currently serves as secretary. She is also a member of the  Southern Chapter of the Medical Library Association (SC/MLA) and the Medical Library Association (MLA).
