Reconsidering Scholarship: Predatory Publishing Session #2
June 4, 2019 2:00 pm-3:00 pm
Location: IREB 230

Have you ever received an email invitation to publish in a journal you’ve never heard of with promises of lightning-fast peer-review and publication times? Or, have you ever found yourself listed on an editorial board that you have no recollection of joining? If so, you’ve probably heard of predatory publishing. Learn about this growing problem in the sciences from librarians at Gibson D. Lewis Library and how to avoid falling prey to a predatory publisher. Participants will:

• Define predatory publishers; discuss red flags and common predatory practices
• Discuss legitimate open access publishing practices and how to find a high-quality open access journal
• Practice identifying predatory publishers with real-life examples

Healthy males age 58 to 84 needed for a research study.


The Department of Family Medicine/OMM is recruiting healthy men for a study entitled “Effects of OMT on Gait Kinematics and Postural Control in Parkinson Disease”.

The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) on gait and balance for healthy adults and persons with Parkinson disease. Our long term goal is to create a protocol that improves gait and postural control, and helps to reduce falls in persons with PD. You are invited to participate as a control subject and your participation involves one visit which may last up to 5 hours. We are currently need healthy males between 58 to 84 years old. During the visit you will be asked to perform balance tasks and may receive OMT. All testing is non-invasive, and compensation will be provided.

If you are interested in participating in this study, please contact the Project Coordinator at 817-735-0246 or 817-735-2177.

May 2019 HSC Asset Q&A III – May 23rd or 31st


Department Chairs & Asset Coordinators,

The Central Services department will be offering Asset Training this month. The training will cover three subjects: Property Custody Receipt (PCR) form changes, Asset Coordinator designation form changes, and reviewing requisitions.

The process for PCR and Asset Coordinator submission will move to an on-line system. Our Digital Content Specialists with the Office of Brand Communication are creating new forms and we will be changing our process to incorporate the on-line forms. This new process will be more user friendly. We are also working with IT to give Coordinators the ability to identify assets as being off-campus, which will simplify the “offsite” process as well. This is an opportunity to show what is being created and receive any feedback you have about these changes.

At the end of our last training session, we received feedback that some coordinators would like to review the requisition process in May prior to the end-of-year push. Lana Sacks and Pam Peden will be providing this training based on what they see on a daily basis. We will review requisitions that have been submitted and explain what we look for and why. Our team would also like for you to bring any questions you have for us.

These changes are being implemented to improve and streamline our processes. We look forward to showing you the direction we are going and receiving suggestions from you.

Training Dates & Locations
May 23rd, 9:30 – 11:15 a.m., EAD 703 (35 seats)
May 31st, 9:30 – 11:15 a.m., IREB 350 (35 seats)

Please RSVP to or ext.2152 by the Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. of the week you would like to attend so we can make adjustments if needed.
