Here to help!
Dear Deans, Chairs, and Faculty Library Liaisons,
Happy Thursday! Welcome to the April (but not April Fools’) edition of Chambers Chat, where we'll be talking about finding preprints and avoiding predatory journals. Without further ado, here we go:
Web of Science™ recently launched the Preprint Citation Index™, a multidisciplinary collection of preprints from leading repositories that helps faculty stay current on research in their field (there’s more info on Preprint here if you’re interested). To access this database, you can use the link above or you can also:
If you have difficulties finding or using the Preprint database (or have any other library-type questions, really), please feel free to
Cabells (a reliable source for identifying predatory journals) is offering tutorial sessions on distinguishing between legitimate and predatory journals via Zoom during the week of April 24th.
Again, if you have any difficulties registering, please contact the library using the information listed above. If you can't attend the sessions, our amazing research librarians would also be happy to help identify predatory journals.
Some of you enjoyed the restaurant recommendation from the last email, so here’s one more for those who might be interested: Tamashii Ramen, both the Edmond and OKC versions. The Miso Butter Corn Ramen with added egg is my absolute fave, but the Garlic Fried Rice is also very tasty.
As always, if you feel that you received this email in error or if there’s someone you’d like me to add to my mailing list, please let me know. I hope your weekend is full of rest and chocolate (or whatever your favorite treat happens to be).
