Fake journals — and also fake conferences — benefit not only vita-padding by academics, this is enabled by the “publishers” who make their living by creating these journals and conferences; see “Fake, deceptive, predatory Science Journals and Conferences” (http://wp.me/p2VG42-29) and “Decadent Science: Does fake differ from genuine? If so, how?” (http://wp.me/p2VG42-2g). Librarian Jeffrey Beall has posted lists of predatory publishers and fake journals at “Scholarly Open Access” (http://scholarlyoa.com/). The problems with psychiatry have their counterpart in medicine and science as a whole. In a sense, these enterprises have experienced, as a result of wishful thinking and misguided exponential growth, bubbles that need at some time to burst; see my recent book, “Dogmatism in Science and Medicine: How Dominant Theories Monopolize Research and Stifle the Search for Truth” (McFarland, 2012; http://www.mcfarlandpub.com/book-2.php?id=978-0-7864-6301-5).
