The advertisements talk about "super food" and " tested cream", or even want to sell us medicaments that are not licenced and permitted in Germany for valid reasons. The "Professor Fake - When Scientists Cheat" documentary clarifies the terminology involved here and shows how the layperson can recognise dubious studies more easily.

Filmtalk: The impact of unreviewed publications in "predatory journals" on the quality and credibility of scientific research.
