Today the front page of the Honduras Weekly features an article by Carol Frey who is one of the AFH active volunteers. It can be see at http://hondurasweekly.com/
Here is the link to the article! 🙂
I think more than anything this is an incentmidt of the peer review system. Of course authors are incentivized to do this kind of thing. Most people expect the peer review process to weed this junk out. Clearly peer review didn’t work. It happens in physical sciences too; I saw it many many times during my PhD days. There’s just too much free and easy money funding professors who need to get published and publishers who need to publish to sell journals to university libraries that need to buy journals to keep somebody (professors?) happy. Or maybe it’s that university libraries need to be able to boast about how many things they have on the shelves in their halls (real or virtual).
