referenciness
 n.— «And the scholarliness of her work is a thing to behold: she produces lengthy documents that have an air of “referenciness,” with nice little superscript numbers, which talk about trials, and studies, and research, and papers… but when you follow the numbers, and check the references, it’s shocking how often they aren’t what she claimed them to be in the main body of the text.» —“A menace to science” by Ben Goldacre Guardian (United Kingdom) Feb. 12, 2007.
