Nature Precedings

Scientific publications being made available to the public without peer-review. What is the world coming to?

Nature Precedings is a place for researchers to share pre-publication research, unpublished manuscripts, presentations, posters, white papers, technical papers, supplementary findings, and other scientific documents. Submissions are screened by our professional curation team for relevance and quality, but are not subjected to peer review.

Do you have any idea how dangerous this is? Ordinary people might seriously hurt themselves using this material. Where are the control-freaks when we need them?
