CRAP paper accepted by journal - opinion - 11 June 2009 - New Scientist

The New Scientist reports thata computer generated paper was accepted by a peer review journal. A graduate student in library and information science at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, "got a nonsensical computer-generated paper accepted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal."

I love this stuff! The ingenuity of the student, the naivete of peer-review, and the thought that the system can be easily undermined.
