payola

Via Invisible Adjunct comes a Chronicle story on payola for the professoriate; professors being paid substantial chunks of money to “review” textbooks that they are then required to adopt for their courses. Speaking for myself, I’ve never been asked to review a textbook for pay; either things are different in Canada, or I’ve just been living a sheltered existence.
