How to Choose Journals

Open Access Publishing

Open-access (OA) literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. 

Predatory Journals and Publishers 

“Predatory journals and publishers are entities that prioritize self-interest at the expense of scholarship and are characterized by false or misleading information, deviation from best editorial and publication practices, a lack of transparency, and/or the use of aggressive and indiscriminate solicitation practices" (Grudniewicz et al., 2019, The definition section).

Posters and Presentations

Compliance

The Chamberlain Scholarly Submission Review Process: All abstracts, posters, presentations and scholarly writing (including articles, books, book chapters, research briefs, etc.) must first be submitted to facultypresentation@chamberlain.edu for a multi-departmental review including CFE, marketing, legal/compliance. After the review and approval process, the scholarly work is then created and numbered by marketing as approved for public outfacing.
