science reporting, science publishing and the public: Revere’s take

It’s no secret to loyal readers that I’m an avid reader of the blog Effect Measure which generally deals with public health issues such as swine flu. But today’s blog entry over there really nails an important issue about how science is published and what “good scientific taste” is really all about. As an editor of a 100+ year old journal myself, I take umbrage at the notion that the only good science is that published in the likes of Science or Nature.

Read today’s Effect Measure blog entry and enjoy!
