"Avoiding Common Ethical Pitfalls in Research" should be an interesting event at the medical campus, Sept. 9, 2:30-4 pm. Speakers will be James Dubois (Professor of Medicine and Director of the Center for Clinical Research Ethics at Washington University) and Jeffrey Beall (Scholarly Communications Librarian at Auroria Library in Denver, Colorado.) Jeffrey Beall compiles a useful list of Potential, possible, or probable predatory scholarly open-access publishers and is sometimes an outspoken critic of open access publishing. The event is sponsored by the WU Clinical Research Training Center and is open to the WU community. More info http://research.wustl.edu/events/Pages/EventDetails.aspx?EventID=804. When I learn the location of this event, I will post it on our Open access at Washington University guide.
