  • 1.  Juul and AJHB

    Posted Jul 22, 2021 05:44 PM
    Juul spent more than $50,000 to have a medical journal run an entire issue of pro-vaping studies funded by the company

    This was very disappointing to read about, to say the least.
    -- Is anyone taking any action on this at your library? (ie. canceling AJHB subscription?)
    -- Do you plan to use it as a teaching opportunity with students? (ie. when Scholarship as Conversation goes awry, conflict of interest, the need to be able to find additional studies that replicate results)

    I'd be interested to hear people's thoughts on this. Thanks!
