Dr Famous published sexy but wrong paper – blog about it? via @pknoepfler
We have all seen cases where a sexy research paper gets attention from the mainstream media. Often this results in oversimplifications of the results and overdrawn conclusions, while not providing a direct link to the original paper.
Now imagine that you have actually read this sexy paper.
Now imagine that the research has some serious issues.
Now imagine that the last author is a famous professor.
Will you devote a blog entry to this paper or not?
