Worth looking at for Healthy Scepticism

Guardian article, including break down of Robert Maxwell – scientific publications mogul.

For a focused look at the actual study of the implications of scientific publishing, and pressure to publish.

Another systematic review and analysis of false studies.

Guardian: a worrying look at how the implications of pressure publishing can affect the most important areas of science – medicine – and what is being done to help.

New Yorker article: not so much about pressure in publishing, but an interesting look at a problem within the scientific method overall.

A better blog post than this – retraction, replication and a great summary of the problems expressed here.

And a bloody John Oliver video to explain it all!
