We’ll also be answering your questions in a live Q&A.
Why should researchers care about research integrity? After all, they do not engage in any questionable research practices, right? Well, as it turns out, 70% of scientists in a recent survey conducted by Nature Publishing Group think there's a problem with reproducibility or have had problems replicating another researcher's work. In this presentation, we'll discuss what Elsevier is doing to maintain and improve the reliability of research and talk about practical steps researchers can take to make their own research more robust, as well.Read more >
Open access journals are scholarly publications, available across the internet. They are freely accessible, with no subscription costs. From 2012 to 2017, the number of open access journals increased from 4,034 to 9,405. 
While open access journals bring clear cost and accessibility advantages, it is important for authors to be able to accurately assess the quality and reputation of any potential publisher.
What are predatory publishers?
Predatory publishers are profiteering individuals or companies, who use the open access publishing model to take advantage of and exploit authors, by charging them article processing fees without providing the high quality editorial services associated with legitimate journals . The term “predatory publisher” was first coined by Jeffrey Beall, who tracked them on his Scholarly Open Access blog from 2012 until January 2017.
Speakers: Jeffrey Beall, Scholarly Communications Librarian and Associate Professor, University of Colorado Denver; Janet Galliera, Executive Director Business Development, PubsHub, an ICON plc company; Nicolle Watts,

Join us for Peer Review Week, a week of celebrations honoring the fundamental role of peer review in scholarly communications.
Peer review - the evaluation of scientific, academic, or professional work by others working in the same field - is at the heart of scholarly communications. Whether evaluating a journal article for publication, a paper to be presented at a conference, a faculty member for promotion, or a grant proposal, a rigorous peer review process helps ensure that a good decision is made.
This webinar will explore the foundations of trust in peer review, with expert speakers from academia and publishing sharing their different perspectives on issues around openness and transparency in the peer review process.

WGSRN is a working paper and preprint server. It is powered by the SSRN platform, which has been helping researchers share their results since 1994.
With thirty plus networks providing classified, organized working papers, and preprints for free, SSRN supports interdisciplinary discovery, collaboration, and sharing. Posting your work prior to peer review can accelerate the advancement of Women's & Gender ideas and research. Plus, it can help enhance your reputation as a researcher.
Gregg is the managing director at SSRN focused on the high quality, rapid, electronic dissemination of scholarly research at the lowest possible cost - Tomorrow's Research Today.
Shirley Decker-lucke is the publishing director at SSRN and joins Gregg’s mission in creating the new, new research for early discovery, collaboration, and sharing.
In May 2016, SSRN joined Elsevier, a world-leading provider of information solutions promoting the performance of science, health, and technology professionals, empowering them to make better decisions, and deliver better care. Together, we can further enhance early discoveries of ideas in an open-access environment of sharing and collaboration.

Cabells introduces two new important features: the Journal Blacklist, the only blacklist of deceptive and predatory academic journals, and Altmetric Reports, a measurement of journal media mention data. Join us to learn more about these and other key resources while getting familiar with the new Cabells brand identity and website interface.
Join Cabells Senior Project Manager Lucas Toutloff who will present the following:
•A demonstration of the Journal Whitelist — our curated, searchable database of over 11,000 journals covering 18 disciplines — connecting researchers, librarians, and administrators to verified, reputable publications. Backed by our newly designed journal summaries presenting our suite of journal quality metrics, now including Altmetric Reports.
•A demonstration of our newly released Journal Blacklist, the industry's only data-driven listing of likely deceptive or fraudulent academic journals. Built on objectivity and transparency, specialists analyze journals against over 60 behavioral indicators to keep the community abreast of the growing threats and to keep researchers protected from exploitative operations.
•An introduction to the new Cabells brand identity, website interface and features, and redesigned journal entries.
In this webinar librarians share their inspiration and process for developing high-impact library services.

As a librarian, you want to introduce your early career researchers to processes and tools that will save them time, improve their workflows, and set them up as good contributors to the scholarly ecosystem. But it can be difficult to keep up-to-date yourself with features across multiple products that address different needs. That’s why we thought we’d try something a little different in our first Library Connect webinar of the year.
We’ve asked a PhD candidate and some of our product whizzes to give you a quick review of features in Mendeley, Scopus, ScienceDirect and Hivebench that can help your researchers work smart, work together and stay up-to-date.
In this webinar, three members of the Beyond Downloads project team will discuss the results of interviews, focus groups, and an international survey with more than 1,000 scholars to investigate the ways in which they now access, store, share and use downloaded scholarly articles. By identifying and measuring what traditional metrics fail to examine, the Beyond Downloads project attempts to capture a more complete picture of the use and value of scholarly articles, which is critical for librarians to understand in acquiring, designing and developing library resources and services.Read more >

For librarians as researchers and librarians supporting researchers:
What is your relationship with research?
Conducting research can be richly rewarding in terms of career development, institutional enrichment, and understanding the needs and pressures of library users. Many librarians and information professionals have a dual role with respect to research: leading their own research/participating as part of a research team, and advising other researchers on achieving research impact.
Join our webinar presenters as they explore three critical facets of managing a research career and reputation. Eminent LIS scholar Carol Tenopir will begin with a presentation based on the new Library Connect ebooklet Librarians Do Research Too! She will outline an easy-to-follow blueprint for LIS professionals to begin their own research projects. Manon Burger will then describe how to prepare and promote articles to increase their visibility and attract readers. Wouter Haak concludes with information on measuring research impact via My Research Dashboard, a new service being rolled out to Elsevier authors that includes metrics, such as citations, usage, views, scholarly mentions and more.
A revolution is taking place within healthcare that will affect its design, deployment and delivery. This revolution's agitators are those who have most to gain, and most to lose, from the changes that are being affected: patients. As the physician-patient relationship evolves, the nature of the expectations empowered patients bring to their interactions with pharmaceutical industry presences is also transforming. Through its presentation of a series of contextual observations and a concluding series of expert view summaries, this webcast assesses the impact that participatory medicine is having upon the pharmaceutial industry's representation and reception within the social web, and asks how the industry may prepare itself to discover, learn, and help in new digital environments.
