Link roundup - academic publishing edition

  • Neylon C, Pattinson D, Bilder G and Lin J. On the origin of nonequivalent states: How we can talk about preprints [version 1; referees: 1 approved]. F1000Research 2017, 6:608 (doi: 10.12688/f1000research.11408.1)
    • Really interesting article that proposes a model that distinguishes the characteristics of the object, its “state” (the external, objectively determinable, characteristics), from the subjective “standing” (the position, status, or reputation) granted to it by different communities. 
  • Baldwin, Melinda, "In referees we trust?", Physics Today 70, 2, 44 (2017); doi:
    • Fascinating article about the history of academic journal peer review, and the societal pressures that have made peer review the "gold standard" of academic credibility, with some discussion of how it's creaking at the seams.
  • "Satire in Scholarly Publishing" - COPE
    • A satirical article made it into a serious review article - COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) give their judgement on the case. TL;DR - always fully read the papers you're citing!

  2. This way my colleague Wesley Virgin's biography launches with this shocking and controversial VIDEO.

    You see, Wesley was in the army-and shortly after leaving-he discovered hidden, "mind control" tactics that the CIA and others used to get everything they want.

    THESE are the same secrets tons of celebrities (notably those who "come out of nothing") and elite business people used to become wealthy and successful.

    You probably know how you only use 10% of your brain.

    Mostly, that's because the majority of your brain's power is UNCONSCIOUS.

    Perhaps that thought has even occurred INSIDE your own brain... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's brain 7 years back, while riding an unlicensed, garbage bucket of a vehicle with a suspended license and with $3 in his bank account.

    "I'm absolutely frustrated with living check to check! When will I become successful?"

    You took part in those thoughts, isn't it right?

    Your success story is waiting to start. All you need is to believe in YOURSELF.
