Here is a link I have to the Science magazine controversy…
… with an answer by Science magazine itself, obviously trying to say how innocent and great Science magazine is …
I particulary like these quotes from the committee:
” In the immediate future, examples will likely come from the areas of climate change, human health, and particular issues in commercial biomedicine and nanotechnology.”
“Science should act in concert with Nature and perhaps a few other high-profile journals to establish common standards. It would be undesirable to have authors choose a journal for submission based on standards, or the lack of standards, of the type discussed here.”
must institutionalize a healthy level of concern in dealing with papers that it considers for publication,
And here is a bit of information about the trustworthiness of Scientific journals in general.
Here is a great new Australian book like Ian Plimer’s book.
And here is a defence against criticism of Ian Plimers new book.
Have a great summer holiday.
PS. Nice graph:
Does 2 million years of human’s African savannah history matter?
