Busted: Scientific (sic) Journals Publish Star Wars Spoof Paper.

Where would we be without peer-reviewed scientific journals? (I love it when stuff like this happens.) Predatory Journals Hit By ‘Star Wars’ Sting | Watts Up With That?

A number of so-called scientific journals have accepted a Star Wars-themed spoof paper. The manuscript is an absurd mess of factual errors, plagiarism and movie quotes. I know because I wrote it.

This is a masterwork of snark, and the original spoof paper is beautiful, even if you aren’t a Star Wars fan. (The last movie I like was, “The Empire Strikes Back.”)
