Introducing “The Nine Circles of Scientific Hell” (a real figure in a real scientific journal)

  • Meet the latest front-runner in the ongoing battle over the title of “Most Amusing Figure to Appear in a Peer-Reviewed Journal.” This figure is the only figure in an article entitled “The Nine Circles of Scientific Hell” — an article that seeks to “take a humorous look at the fate that awaits scientists who sin against best practice,” and was just published in Perspectives on Psychological Science. To be fair, the article is supposed to be funny, so whether it can official contend for the Most Amusing title with journal figures from more “serious” academic papers is up for debate; but this paper is notable for another reason.
