Scientific papers are ways for profs to get promotion and tenure, as we all
know. What percentage of those are worthless? For some journals, probably
100% (those where you have to pay to get it published). For the very top
journals probably 25%. This constitutes an enormous waste of talent.
Some, myself for instance, are not so hot at research and much better at
teaching. I was able to avoid most research and others should be able to
choose this path. This would lighten the worthless load quite a bit. bill
