I wrote the following comment in San Fransisco View after reading the news:
"I do not waste my time reading the "papers" of Joe Mangano and Janette
Sherman. Dr Busby also deserves the same distinction. The observations
of these are far away from any thing scientific. Their data points in
any "study" are outliers.
Of course, those readers who follow them will have the privilege of loosing their sleep permanently."
"Scientific Research Publishing" publishes 200 journals It is located in China! registered in USA.These journals are termed "Predatory". The long winding explanations on why it is published from China but registered in USA offer interesting reading.
You may access a routine discussion on the publisher at:
The science publication world now consists of different "business models". I routinely get invitations to submit articles to OPEN ACCESS journals. I delete them without reading!
There are discussions on predatory journals. There are a few instances of these journals publishing fake papers.They will publish anything on payment of about $600 per paper. This is a lot of money in places where such journals are published!

This was also printed in one of the San Diego papers; both cited the publication in "Open Journal of Pediatrics." The "Open Journal... " does claim to be a peer reviewed scientific publication. This publication does exist and can readily found on the internet - it looks like quite the ordinary thing in format.
They cite CA and some other state records of cases of hypothyroidism in infants (turns out this a commonplace post-natal exam). Of course, they cite only 2 periods and just skip all that nasty stuff of normal fluctuations in events, other times of observation and all things statistical :).
Would be a great thing to rebut in an actual scientific manner. It is a shame to let non-science pass itself off as actual science, even if commonplace and less obvious to the press.
