Working towards my dissertation one letter at a time.
I absolutely agree.Someone in my cohort had an article published in Top-Tier Journal (and then s/he had the nerve to present it at a conference). Every A-lister scholar who heard the presentation remarked that the article was garbage.Reason for publishing it?Top-Tier Journal needed to publish an article using New Methodology and this was the only one submitted that used it (albeit very incorrectly).And to think, I joined the academy to get away from politicking... =)
Want to know how shameless I am? Despite my slandering of this article, I've already cited it TWICE in my lit background section. It serves my purposes well enough and the lead author is a friend of a scholar I know well. Be in the game but not of it. Oui?
