白卷英雄神马的都是浮云,你见过空白论文吗?

上古神话传说中,Einstein的大作“论动体的电动力学”只有短短数页,并且没有参考文献,被奉为神文。没想到69年后,Einstein被超越了,出现了一篇空白论文。更神奇的是此空白论文竟被引用了12次。

此文发表在《应用行为分析杂志》1974年第7卷497页上。除了标题(“一例‘写作障碍’的失败自疗”—The Unsuccessful Self-treatment of a Case of “Writer’s Block”),作者名(Dennis Upper), 及隶属机构(Veterans Administration Hospital, Brockton, Massachusetts)之外,一片空白。无一词一句,无一篇引用文献。大半页空白下,除了编辑加注的“于1973年10月25日收到,无修改即发表”和例行声明及通讯作者地址外,就是此文画龙点睛的传奇评论了。 这位匿名审稿人是这么说的: “我仔仔细细地审阅了这篇论文,连柠檬汁和X 射线都用上了,也没找到实验设计或写作风格上的任何瑕疵。我建议,此文无需修改,直接发表。很明显,这绝对是我读过的最为简明扼要的论文,而它又包含了足够的细节使得其他研究人员能够轻而易举地重复阿普尔博士的失败结果。跟你们编辑扔给我的其他那些又臭又长的论文比起来,审阅这篇论文真是美好的享受。再说了,我们肯定能在杂志里找到发表这篇论文的地方—比如一张空白页的边缘?”

史上最牛论文

此作者绝对不是什么业余混混,履历相当专业:
