Researchers Get Ridiculous (But Agenda-Friendly) Studies Published in Academic Journals

0

from Vigilant Citizen:

A team of three self-declared “left-wing academics” sent 20 bogus articles peppered with agenda-friendly buzzwords to peer-reviewed publications. The result: Seven papers were accepted, four were published online and three were in process.

Led by Peter Boghossian, an assistant professor of philosophy at Portland State University, the team submitted “intentionally broken” papers to leading publications on race, gender, and sexuality. The goal was to prove that, if one used the correct language, pandered to the correct agenda and emphasized the correct buzzwords, one could get published in “serious” peer-reviewed journals. And it worked. A little too well.
