Storification of Fake Science Publishing @fakeelsevier @fakeplos @realelsevier @fakeeisen @closedaccessj

So – I have been enjoying all the Fake Scientific Publishing Posts on Twitter from @fakeelsevier @fakeplos @realelsevier @fakeeisen @closedaccessj and others.  Now I understand why some people think I am behind some of these (e.g., here are some of my Fake Science News posts).  But alas though I WISH I was behind some of these accounts, I am not.  Anyway – I created a storification of the beginning of some of these postings if you want to see some of the origins of the fakery.

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
