The Chronicle of Higher Education has some coverage of the final press publication of the paper formerly known as ‘Voodoo Correlations in Social Neuroscience’ and there will be seven responses by other authors in the same issue. This has been an important paper for a number of reasons including the breach of convention in prepublishing on the internet as well as the direct attack on the reputations of individual scientists but also the resulting blogosphere debate which perhaps represents an emerging paradigm shift in the nature of scientific discourse.
It should read ‘the possible breach of convention in actively promoting the paper online prior to its publication in the journal’. See comments below.
