Don’t mess with the peer-review process

There is always a first time for everything. I didn't think I'd ever attempt to put a video on this blog, but having been shown this on YouTube last night, I thought I'd share it. I have seen other subtitles (on other subjects) applied to this clip, but this particular one is very funny.

  1. Seen this clip adapted to lots of different’calamities’ e.g. twitter being down (also v funny) but this one really well done. I especially like the female aside ‘Not true, they were high ranking last year.”

  2. Yes, Norman, I’d be a bit gutted if I were ed of Scientific American and had to publish Hitler. Clare – agreed, whoever made this clip is certainly well-versed in scientific journal publishing and the associated “assessment metric” shenanigans.

  3. The video is both funny and provocative, and it suggests this question: Does Herr Adolf also have a stake in the climate-change data fiasco?
