Over nine hundred and one mentions of the name Keith Hancock, or Keith Michael Hancock have appeared so far in papers published by Academia.edu, according to Academia. Every day Academia notifies me of yet more such papers being submitted to them.
Academia also tells me they’ll identify the papers and their authors if I pay them a yearly fee of $99.
The website says Academia.edu is used by academics in “16,919 universities”, suggesting these include Oxford, Berkeley, MIT, and NYU.
If you have come across any actual evidence of this in papers you have read or others have read and told you about, I’d be grateful if you’d let me know.
