Two science scams in one day !

I've written about fake scientific conferences, but here's the latest twist on vanity publishing for scientists. A company called Research Media has offered to write about our research in a "special journal" called International Innovation, in exchange for $2930. Needless to say, our library doesn't carry this "journal."

Also, someone offered to write a favorable review of my book on Amazon in exchange for endorsing her Kickstarter project. She wasn't quite that explicit, of course.

Do people really think scientists are stupid?
