B – Credentials and conformity

Greyber, Howard D. Credentials and conformity. Physics Today. 2008;61(7):8.

Letter supporting the letter by William Aghassi ibid. 60(10)12 but going further saying “Actually credentials also mean little today, unless your research is in a trendy topic like string theory and you write from a famous university like MIT, Cambridge University, Imperial College or Caltech. Gatekeepers and editors shun originality.”
