I think the link is missing from the post–one link is http://news.sciencemag.org/scientific-community/2015/04/sexist-peer-review-elicits-furious-twitter-response
Also, that’s completely appalling.
Thanks Matt — it just came up in my twitter feed so I posted the tweets themselves in the post rather than a link, but that’s helpful.
Ah! My browser sometimes doesn’t display embedded tweets, so I just saw the two non-tweet sentences without context. Sorry for assuming there was an error in the post rather than in my browser!
No worries — I was glad for the link!
I’m kind of astonished.
What others have said. You have already, Claire, made a significant contribution to the profession. Be assured that a lot of people will have a very positive impression you.
