Over 120 Science Journal Papers Pulled For Being Total Gibberish

If you ever find yourself scratching your head over the complicated articles in science and math journals, don’t feel too bad about yourself. Because there’s a chance that whatever you’re attempting to read is actually 100 percent, Grade A, peer-reviewed drivel.

Earlier this week, Nature revealed that scientific journal publishers Springer and IEEE are both removing over 120 published papers after discovering that every single one is nothing more than fancy-sounding gibberish. The fairly egregious oversight was discovered by French computer scientist Cyril Labbé, who’s spent the past two years cataloguing the collection of computer-generated drivel.
