Summary/Abstract: A publishing fashion to create new notions, to define such notions and to classify them without any apparent need, that is being observed nowadays (especially in the context of logistics and transportation), frequently results in generation of unnecessarily complex and inconsistent theories, which leads to numerous misunderstandings. This probably stems from intensive post-PhD efforts that are characterised by some domination of the will to develop a particular scientific domain over common sense. It often proves methodological gaps, that can also be understood to be a non-economic approach to science. The article aims at providing readers with some insights into different traps that may be encountered by individuals who follow the above-mentioned pattern.
