That’s another fine mess you’ve got us into, peer review

Being married to a scientist, I have to say I’ve heard a lot of similar stories and for an outsider it’s just a huge mess made by some brilliant minds.

However, when trying to redefine or improve the current situation, one must not just think about the process but also about the bigger picture. That is why I feel this is the worst suggestion one could possibly make. Not all science is neuroscience, and not all science is read by people that understand it. And to filter or withdraw something you have already labeled as science would be a total disaster. Scientific results are anyway very often misinterpreted by the very same scientists that wrote the paper and let alone the reader. Very soon the (already shaken) reputation of scientific results would disappear.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
