Prof. Derek Pyne, of the Thompson Rivers University, questioned the practice followed by some professors who publish their work in the so-called predatory journals, arguing that they advance despite inadequate research.

KAMLOOPS – A professor who was suspended from Thompson Rivers University after speaking out against publication of research in peer-reviewed journals, will resume work next month.

Prof. Derek Pyne questioned the practice followed by some professors who publish their work in the so-called predatory journals, arguing that they go ahead despite inadequate research.

Pyne was expelled from campus in May and has been in an unpaid suspension for her feedback from a colleague who was being considered for a position at the university in Kamloops.

The university says it will return to teaching at the business and economics school in January.

Pyne says he met with the director of human resources and a dean this week, but there are still some problems to be solved.

He says the university still owes him two weeks of salary and his union has filed a complaint on his behalf.
