RETRACTION WATCH: Indian engineer publishes fake paper, exposes “science” conference.

A technology entrepreneur from Pune named Navin Kabra has pulled back the sheets on a local conference, the International Conference on Recent Innovations in Engineering, Science & Technology, by submitting two bogus manuscripts for presentation — both of which were accepted. . . .

In an echo of the recent case of punking from Serbia, the  published paper includes significant passages from “My Cousin Vinny.”

Follow-up from Kabra: Fake Paper Update: My Paper has now been disqualified. “I am pretty sad that I am disqualified from attending upcoming IRAJ conferences. The next one in Pune, happening just one week from now, is International Conference Academics on Computer Science and Information Technology. But, this time, I hope the organizers read the accepted papers more carefully.”
