Fake Computer-Generated Studies Found In Renowned Scientific Journals

As someone who tries to do a fair amount of reading and research, there are times when in the middle of trying to digest something I stop and think to myself  "what the heck are these people trying to say?".

Now it turns out... they may be saying nothing at all.  Some investigations by scientists reveal that even peer reviewed journals (the gold standard for scientific publication) may be accepting articles written in scientific gibberish.

It's a sorry state of affairs, but something that was bound to happen, I suppose.  Whatever happened to writing your own stuff?  I mean that's what I do and I'm just a lowly Technology Editor for a dental publication.

Here is the article.  Read at your own risk.
