Pflugfelder, Ehren Helmut – Written Communication, 2022
Predatory publishers deliver neither the editorial oversight, nor the peer review of legitimate publishers, and benefit from those whose positions require academic publications.

Prabakaran, Madhu – Higher Education for the Future, 2020
The historical appropriation of epistemological values is the theme of the article. Bachelard, one of the pioneering thinkers on epistemological evolution, presupposed that historical epistemology will culminate in the end of its history. Scientific imagination should be decluttered from human sentimentalities, Bachelard observed. For that, it is…

Hidalgo-Tenorio, Encarnación; Benítez-Castro, Miguel-Ángel – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2022
Recursively in history, emotions such as social anger, moral satiety, distrust of the elite and the Establishment, among others, have all contributed to politicians' encouragement and exploitation of a rather emotionally charged discourse (Block, E., and R. Negrine. 2017. "The Populist Communication Style: Toward a Critical Framework."…
