Conspiracy Theorists Get Paper Withdrawn Through Bogus Legal Threat

Conspiracy Theorists Get Paper Withdrawn Through Bogus Legal Threat | Archivance - Miscellanées | Scoop.it
A peer reviewed journal has withdrawn a paper on conspiracy theory belief amongst opponents of climate science. Not as a result of any factual errors or failure to meet academic standards, but because of the threat of defamation. As serious as this is, concern is even higher because legal advice holds that the paper is not defamatory and any law suit would fail. The withdrawal is a win for those hostile to climate change research and other conspiracy theorists in general, who in the lead author's words, “routinely bombard journals demanding papers be withdrawn.”
