Power Publishing featured presentations by and meet and greets with editors and publishers from academic publishing houses such as Taylor & Franics, McGraw Hill, SAGE, and more. Online and in person, participants learned about creating academic videos, open access publishing, textbook publishing, writing and using case studies, where to publish, avoiding predatory publishing, publishing your research, writing a great research paper, and finding the right journal for your paper.

Morris and D’Agostino presented “Hard Work Preys Off: Recognizing & Avoiding Predatory Publishing,” which focused on how to spot the signs of predatory publishing and strategies for securing your scholarship. “Power Publishing Day is an important event for the Alvin Sherman Library and for the greater NSU community at large. I value being a part of this event as well as having the opportunity to educate faculty and students about predatory publishing,” said D’Agostino.

Power Publishing Day is part of the NSU Library “Gear Up” workshops series, which offers faculty and students professional development opportunities to engage with librarians and gain knowledge in areas of research, publishing, grants, and copyright.
