Deep Diving Dinosaurs? Time to Write a Letter.


Need I say more?

Green Tea and Velociraptors

Deep-diving dinosaurs! How cool would that be?! At least, if it wasn’t total nonsense and possibly another example of a peer-reviewing fiasco. This is the title of a new article from a journal that usually produces pretty damn good science, especially of the Palaeo breed. It’s not worth delving into the content of the article, but what it demonstrates is a complete failing on the part of either the author or publishers, and propagation of misinformation from the scholarly domain. This article is actually about decompression pathologies in marine reptiles and sperm whales as a response to an earlier article on the same topic.

  1. The journal in which this paper appears is known for publishing trash. Their review process is shoddy at best, and probably nonexistent. I would encourage any respectable scientist to avoid publishing in it.
