Can you prove that?

In any case, they are not "citable".

Published works - the "citable" bits that are deemed to contribute to
body of human knowledge - are *inaccessible* for the majority of humans.
That conflicts with the core of the scientific method. Do these works
actually exist? If a scientist makes a claim of some discovery but not
provide evidence, what do we call that?

Where are the reviews? On what grounds were the published works accepted
at JWS? What was rejected and why? Can you make this information public
so that the scientific community can conduct an audit? If not, why not?
