In the system of scientific publications was a kind of “Etc.”, who has written more than 600 scientific articles and published more than 500 scientific books.
Journalist Ilya Shepelin drew attention to the incredible absurdity contained in a completely serious scientific source:
“The system of scientific publications, Moscow state University, “TRUTH” took “And Others” for the scientist.
Intelligent system case studies scientometric data the TRUTH embedded in MSU, recognized contribution to Russian and world science undeservedly forgotten scientist.
Profile of an author named “Etc” found historian Dmitry Belyaev noticed that what happened is “the best characteristic of all scientometric Orgy in Russian version”.
In the user profile “And Others” — articles 614, 549 books, 104 of the report on the conference, 50 papers, 44 patents and 141 training course. The number of citations in Scopus than 12 thousand”.
Unfortunately, dear fellow scientist, ETC (probably of Korean origin) with the TRUTH already deleted but the Internet remembers everything, as usual…”
On this occasion, one of the blog readers remembered anecdote:
“Total! I say total! In total there are?..
That idiot, he made more money than everyone expected, and he didn’t come.”
