Re the hoax paper that just took in Higher Education Quarterly:
According to Jonathan Bartlett, you could be the lucky sharpwit who spots the next one!
More intriguingly, “Sage Owens” told the Chronicle, “We plan to reveal the full extent of this hoax later. For now we recommend readers look for other fake papers.” Marina Ziemnick from the National Association of Scholars identified the Twitter account of “Sage Owens,” though the account is now suspended. Until November 30, the account attempted to maintain the appearance of being a real account. Then, on December 1, the account asked, “Can you find the other 15?” and followed up by pointing out many of the errors.
One of the anonymous hoaxers said, “We plan to reveal the full extent of this hoax later. For now we recommend readers look for other fake papers.”Jonathan Bartlett, “Be on the lookout for more Sokal Hoaxes” at Mind Matters News (December 6, 2021)
That could be a hoax too. But there are plenty of Woke journals out there…
And if you spot one, let Bartlett know by tagging @cnaintelligence on Twitter. We will bring you the latest, the greatest, the dumbest, the craziest, and the best.
We will force people to start reading and thinking about what they publish! Or face the Gong!
