    A Sokal-style hoax against "gender studies" called "The conceptual penis as a social construct", complete with fake references generated by an online postmodern gibberish generator, has been pulled off against a supposed social science journal.

    Fake paper here: https://web.archive.org/web/20170519...17.1330439.pdf

    Authors' explanation here: http://www.skeptic.com/reading_room/...ender-studies/

    Nice work chaps.

    The journal was pretty new but a reputable publishing house so a solid hit.

    Here is a defence of that hoax against critics by Helen Pluckrose, who is "critical of postmodernism and cultural constructivism which she sees as currently dominating the humanities."

    Dog appointed to the editorial boards of seven medical journals and asked to be a reviewer.

    "Several journals have published on their websites a supplied photo of Dr Doll, which is actually of a bespectacled Kylie Minogue."
