“The Journal of Irreproducible Results”

This is for real. No kidding. The Journal of Irreproducible Results has been around for a long time and is in its 48th year of publication. I always smile when I recall articles from it that I have read in the past. Virologist Alexander Kohn and physicist Harry J. Lipkin founded the journal in 1955 in Ness Ziona, Israel. The journal is dedicated to providing humor with a scientific bent. The Wikipedia entry characterizes the journal’s content as a “unique mix of jokes, satire of scientific practice, science cartoons, and discussion of funny but real research.”  JIR characterizes itself in this way: “JIR targets hypocrisy, arrogance, and ostentatious sesquipedalian circumlocution. We’re a friendly escape from the harsh and the hassle. JIR makes you feel good .” 🙂
