And here we go again, and again it’s none other than the Journal of Archaeological Science. In Piqué et al. there are nine co-authors, several referees and an editor, who have all signed their names to passing the article and not a single one of them has noticed the figure (5) with no labels on the axes whatsoever and a caption with not a single syllable to tell us, what it may be, that’s actually shown there.

From Jiang et al. one could deduce that successful leadership tends not to result from competence, as real-world competence often correlates with slightly autistic personality traits.
