Sixty peer-reviewed research essays retracted

Ouch! This is the biggest peer-review fraud I have heard of, though as academic dishonesty goes the bogus autism study was far more significant in consequences: "The publication is the Journal of Vibration and Control (JVC). It publishes papers with names like “Hydraulic engine mounts: a survey” and “Reduction of wheel force variations with magnetorheological devices.”"

Scholarly journal retracts 60 articles, smashes ‘peer review ring’ - The Washington Post

The dirty side of expecting professors to get published.

Yup. But as I tell my students. We're still responsible for our ethics, despite any unfair or not useful metrics of "productivity."

What I learned in my naval reactors days was, ask a mechanic what a bearing temperature is and they read the guage and tell you what it says. Ask an electrician what the voltage on a bus is and they push a button to get a reading and tell you. Ask a water chemistry tech what the ammoinia concentration is in the coolant and they will say, "what do you want it to be?"
