    Open Psych is a website that publishes two "peer-reviewed" science journals. I highlight "peer-reviewed" because they are not properly reviewed by referees/peers and both journals are pseudo-journals. The authors publishing in these journals are also Neo-Nazis and white nationalists because the journals focus on race, and race & IQ with a strong biased racialist viewpoint.

    By "dissatisfaction" they mean their pseudo-science on race won't be published in science journals - so they had to set up their own like how creationists do. Emil O. W. Kirkegaard also is a mere university undergraduate with a BA in linguistics, so he's not even qualified to discuss genetics or biology.

    Open Pysch which recently published The Nature of Race was written by white nationalist pseudo-scientist John Fuerst -

    This is interesting how I created this thread, as well as their Rationalwiki entries, before this happened:

    http://www.vox.com/2016/5/12/11666116/70000-okcupid-users-data-release
    Researchers just released profile data on 70,000 OkCupid users without permission

    Yes, its the same guy, Emil OW Kirkegaard.

    "On his blog, Keyes points out that Kirkegaard published the methods paper in a journal called Open Differential Psychology. The editor of that journal? Kirkegaard.
    "The thing [Open Differential Psychology] looks pretty much like a vanity press," Keyes writes. "In fact, of the last 26 papers it 'published', he authored or co-authored 13." The paper claims it was peer-reviewed, but the fact that Kirkegaard is the editor is a conflict of interest."

    This is what I warning about.
