The problem is that the process has been hacked
This article by Risk Monger explains what is going on
Once you have a Groupthink, peer review becomes worthless.So why don’t I just publish my articles in some academic journals or news organisations?
Academic journals have become more a tool in lobbying and activist campaigns than any academic endeavour or knowledge exchange. Journal editors often seek controversial headlines and click-bait rather than sound methodology. Replicability of findings no longer seems to be a valid question or an issue for retraction. University communications departments try to generate buzz and media attention for the smallest of citations. Activist NGOs and tort law firms see a “peer-reviewed article” in an academic journal as pure campaign gold (for the price of silver). But where is the scientific value and integrity in this process?
What we need is Skeptic Review.
