Major Criticism on the Publications of Academics

A few years ago it became known that a well-known Dutch professor, Diederik Stapel, had invented the data on which tens of his articles were based.  This essay shows that there is a huge area of poor research and that peer reviews have also become a grey area.  The essay expresses doubts whether the real societal aim of science is met: to contribute to a better world and a better life on this earth.  It says that a systemic approach to the problem is necessary.
