Predatory Open Access Publishers

While publishing in open access journals can often be a prestigious honor, there are some open access publishers who operate on a pay-to-publish model, appealing to those who would like to be published quickly and without review. See this brief article in the newsletter of the Midcontinental Chapter of the Medical Library Association discussing UCBoulder Librarian and Assistant Professor Jeffrey Beall’s research regarding Predatory Open Access Publishers and their practices.

AMA journals temporarily unavailable

Due to the publisher’s processing issues, JAMA and the Archives journals are temporarily unavailable. The library does subscribe to the titles in print and any requests through McGoogan Docs will be processed free of charge during this downtime.

We apologize for any issues this may cause you.

Online Journal Finder downtime November 26

TDNet, the company that hosts the library’s Online Journal Finder, will be conducting server tests on Saturday, November 26. There may be times when this interface is not available. That includes the GetIt@UNMC and Check For Full-Text links in our databases.

Full-text journals can be accessed during this downtime by searching for the journal title in the Helix Library Catalog. If you wish to order an article, you can access the order form from the green tab on any library webpage.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
