@jorge Some people seem to want peer review to define what is and is not scientific, but reviewers are fallible, distracted human beings and human beings disagree about what is good science.
@jorge and I would sure hope that anyone with a PhD understands that just because some journal somewhere accepted a paper does not mean that it is a sound argument according to the rules of the reader's discipline! There are whole fields where 'publishing' consists of uploading a paper onto a preprint server and the world has not come to an end.
@jorge I was also shocked seeing that. That reporting was not fully fair. Most people using such services are on the edge of science a series of blog posts analysing these journals showed.
The established researchers on the list are often co-authors, who wrongly trusted the first author. Fake journals ask enormous fees for people finding out where they published and wanting their names removed.

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
