what makes good science - an example

  1. 5,732 Posts.
    It sometimes appears there is not much understanding in the broader community of the effort required for and intricacies involved in scientific research. To help address this deficiency and promote good will between scientists and those who have never seen a test tube or a bunsen burner, I offer this excellent scientific paper from the prestigious BMJ.

    Note that peer review does not stop with publication and that there are a number of comments attached to the article, including some alternative theories and rebuttals to the original theory.

    I trust that after reading the full article and the comments, many more people who are interested in science but afraid to discuss it on equal terms with scientists will be more confident and less self-conscious about their personal lack of actual scientific experience.
