What about the suppression of innovation? Every scientist knows of major discoveries that ran into trouble with peer review. David Horrobin has a remarkable paper ( ref ) where he documents some of the discoveries almost suppressed by peer review; as he points out, he can’t list the discoveries that were in fact suppressed by peer review, because we don’t know what those were. His list makes horrifying reading. Here’s just a few instances that I find striking, drawn in part from his list. Note that I’m restricting myself to suppression of papers by peer review; I believe peer review of grants and job applications probably has a much greater effect in suppressing innovation.
We use a version of the Harvard referencing style, which is outlined below and in 'how to submit/abc of formatting' guide (also attached as pdf to this page). We use single ‘quotation marks’ only, with ‘the exception of “quotes” within quotes’, with punctuation marks ‘outside the quotation marks’ , unless they are a part of it, followed by the reference, .: (Author, year: page). Quotations that are longer than one sentence should be put into an indented block, without quotation marks and with a text size of 10pt. The quotation should end with a full stop before the reference.
