PubMed, Power & Privilege

We often think of search interfaces and systems as neutral, but they exist within power structures and reproduce biases. In this class, we will explore the underlying systems that influence what type of information is available in PubMed and how we access it. You will learn how to describe and critique the academic publishing model in the context of power and privilege and recognize how structural racism and other forms of oppression are built into PubMed searches.
