OTTAWA — I have just written the world’s worst science research paper: More
than incompetent, it’s a mess of plagiarism and meaningless garble.
Now science publishers around the world are clamouring to publish it.
They will distribute it globally and pretend it is real research, for a fee.
It’s untrue? And parts are plagiarized? They’re fine with that.
*Welcome to the world of science scams*, a fast-growing business that sucks
money out of research, undermines genuine scientific knowledge, and
provides fake credentials for the desperate.
*This is the problem making scholarly communication publishing
*Scholarly communication publishing should be a non-profit activity of
academic libraries in the internet age.*
