Slides accompany a class developed to teach graduate students in health professions programs about journals related to their fields, as well as a heads-up on the explosion of new ejournals, some of which are fraudulent. Includes information about trends in scholarly communication, particularly open access. Offers tools to help evaluate unfamiliar journals for quality and trustworthiness, and includes a small group exercise to evaluate specific journals using a worksheet. This class has been taught to graduate students in pharmacy, dental medicine, and physical therapy, but this presentation is a general template to adapt to any audience.
