APAS presents a series of publications highlighting some of the weird and wonderful research findings hidden amongst the scientific literature.
This series aims to ensure that we remember the funnier side of science and provides answers to questions we may have been too afraid to ask.
The fascinating world of amusing research generally applies serious science to unusual but intriguing research questions, while also including the occasional spoof paper. Often this involves employing spatial tools and innovative approaches to data collection and analysis.
