When scientists go nuts: bizarre outputs in publications

When scientists go nuts: bizarre outputs in publications

Doing Science and communicating science are two different arts altogether. Scientists perform their research in the laboratory and convey the findings in the research articles. The laboratory works are rigorously executed with proper protocol and standardizations. The outputs of the experiments, findings thereof reported in the peer-reviewed articles are mostly conceived by academic peers. The generalised way of scientific writing, particularly the methods and results portion are conceived monotonous for the general audience [1].

The cold and competent spirit of science communication needs to be revamped. Particularly in the era when science popularisation and scientific literacy peak among the masses. The effective science communication is not only desired to get the scientists down from the privileged seclusion but to bring in funding for their research [2].

While majority of the publications process from the same conveyer belt, a few attempted exclusions from this and some oozed their loopholes while doing so. I am attaching the screenshots of some papers which are from different leagues.
