“Respected Peer-Reviewed Journal” Falls For Ridiculous Hoax.

Whenever anyone points out being in a “peer-reviewed journal” as an indicator of an author’s veracity, just remember this story.

A piece on the “conceptual penis” published in the journal Cogent Social Sciences, self described as “a multidisciplinary open access journal offering high quality peer review across the social sciences: from law to sociology, politics to geography, and sport to communication studies. Connect your research with a global audience for maximum readership and impact.”
