ABSTRACT

This journal is a multitarget publication that allows authors a free choice of subject for discussion and presentation. It was created in response to a need for expression of all authors from the fields of natural and humanistic sciences, culture, and history, theology and occultism. The spectrum of authors includes prominent scientists, students as well as the employees of Scientific Research Publishing Inc., and every other publisher. There is no subject that cannot be presented or discussed in the journal. The only requirements for publication in the journal are the professionalism of the author(s) and a good knowledge of the relevant subject. Of course, the primary concern of the publisher is to improve the quality of published papers, to curb plagiarism and avoid fabrications in published information in all aspects of life. The main issue discussed in this paper is the fall in quality of published papers, which has resulted from the appearance of educational centers that lack a tradition of teaching. Moreover, the employment of scientists by politicians and industry to promote their political agendas and industrial needs using pseudo-scientific data has contributed significantly to this fall. One of the greatest politicians in human history, Otto von Bismarck, said: “People never lie so much as after a hunt, during a war, or before an election”. Today the pseudo-scientific publication can take an honorable place among the events named by Otto von Bismarck in his immortal aphorism.
