Steven Streufert is a friend of BFE, and he does not mind us calling him anti-Dr. Melba Ketchum -- trust us. It's obvious by all the negative Bigfoot DNA related articles and critical questions about Ketchum's study posted in his Facebook group, "Coalition for Reason, Science, Sanity in Bigfoot Research", that he's not too fond of Ketchum.
What really bugs him the most is the fact that he can't find anything on record about the science journal, "Journal of Advanced Multidisciplinary Exploration in Zoology", Ketchum supposedly purchased before renaming it to DeNovo. "No prior papers. No authors. No editors. No peer reviewers. FAKE," Streufert complained on Facebook:
Can anyone out there find any information on the record and credentials of the "Journal of Advanced Multidisciplinary Exploration in Zoology," which Melba Ketchum supposedly bought and which supposedly did "peer review" on her paper? It is entirely gone, so far as I can tell (dead link), and not turning up anywhere in Google save in being mentioned in Bigfoot DNA-related articles. I suspect this "Journal" was a big nothing that never published much of anything, if anything at all. IS KETCHUM LYING TO US???
Another problem he has with Ketchum is that she chose a less than professional website creation tool to create the DeNovo Science Journal website. He found several mistakes on their page, including a spelling error. "They can't even spell their own name: '©DeVono Scientific Publishing,'" he wrote:
CREATE YOUR OWN JOURNAL, YOUR OWN WEB SITE, BE YOUR OWN PEER REVIEW BOARD, BE YOUR OWN EDITOR, DO SCIENCE *YOUR* WAY, WITHOUT ALL OF THAT NASTY NEED FOR ACCOUNTABILITY AND CREDIBILITY. IT'S EASY!
Here is the site that was used to create DeNovo Journal by Ketchum. VERY PROFESSIONAL. Just cliick "view source" on the DeNovo page and you will see the link-backs to this site creator.
