  1. "Proofs of obscure provenance are sometimes overlooked at first, but usually not for long: A major paper like Royen’s would normally get submitted and published somewhere like the Annals of Statistics, experts said, and then everybody would hear about it. But Royen, not having a career to advance, chose to skip the slow and often demanding peer-review process typical of top journals. He opted instead for quick publication in the Far East Journal of Theoretical Statistics, a periodical based in Allahabad, India, that was largely unknown to experts and which, on its website, rather suspiciously listed Royen as an editor. (He had agreed to join the editorial board the year before.)"
  2. The content of the paper is "Get me off your fucking mailing list" and has many awesome figures.
  3. Move to article-based metrics people.
  4. Really nice advice on how to write a good review. Not all (any?) of my reviews have been this good. I'll try to fix that in the future!
  5. Awesome. Not open access but, at least in the medium term, a positive way to address issues of access to the academic resources necessary to write a great encyclopedia.
  6. Page length distribution.
  7. Extraordinarily over-detailed description of how to get cited a lot.
  8. BLINDER THAN YOU CAN HANDLE
  9. This, more than anything else, makes me want to reconsider my academic trajectory.
