The result is hilarious and delightful. It also showcases a serious problem with big parts of academia.
And, deary me, what papers these are!
But after today, there's no more excuse for calling this bullshit out when you see it.
Out of 20 papers
7 accepted for publication
7 in process (e.g. R&R, etc.)
To show you how seriously the hoaxers take the truth, @HPluckrose was first to point this out.
These weren't the *best* journals in sociology or poli sci. They won't get you tenure in traditional fields at most Ivies.
It's worth stating the obvious: by and large, academia remains a serious search for truth.
If you want to get tenure in newer departments, like Gender Studies, at serious liberal arts colleges or well-known research universities, publication in these journals will help. A lot.
Though most parts of academia retain serious intellectual standards, Sokal Squared suggests that you can now be made a professor, and get to teach college kids, by spewing absurd, ideological bullshit.
Anyone who waves that off is in deep denial.
