    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;Misinformation, conspiracy theory, and &amp;#39;fake news&amp;#39; pose serious threats to the pubic health. Predatory scientific journals, which will publish anything without any semblance of peer review, are a potential venue for medical misinformation. Most people cannot differentiate a predatory journal from a legitimate one, so these fraudulent publications can thus provide a veneer of acceptability to poor quality research, deliberate misconduct, lies, and even utter gobbledygook.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Case in point: the predatory &amp;quot;American Journal of Biomedical Science &amp;amp; Research&amp;quot; has recently published a paper associating an outbreak of COVID-19 in a fictional city caused by the consumption of a Pok&amp;eacute;mon, a fictional creature. The paper is written by fictional characters like Nurse Joy (Pok&amp;eacute;mon) and Dr. Gregory House (House MD) with fictional affiliations. The paper goes out of its way to assert its own fictional nature, claiming even that &amp;quot;a journal publishing this paper does not practice peer review and must therefore be predatory.&amp;quot; Yet it was published online [https://biomedgrid.com/pdf/AJBSR.MS.ID.001256.pdf] a mere four days after submission. Here are uploaded the paper and the emails associated with its publication (which was done even though the author never paid the journal any money).&lt;br&gt;
&lt;br&gt;
While this paper may be mostly harmless, it is completely possible for someone to write and swiftly publish a paper falsely claiming, say, that COVID-19 is caused by 5G cell phones or can be cured by essential oils or is caused by watching &amp;#39;Tiger King.&amp;#39; Predatory journals remove all barriers to the publication of bullshit in the scientific record, and the world needs to take far stronger action against these criminal organizations.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
