B - How to Publish a Scientific Comment in 1 2 3 Easy Steps

Trebino R. How to Publish a Scientific Comment in 1 2 3 Easy Steps
Physics World 2009;22(11):56.

The history of an ultimately unsuccessful attempt by Trebino to comment on a paper which "proved" that his life's work was wrong! Caught between a limit of 1 page and reviewers' insistence on more detail, and finally the reviewers' rejection of the author's official reply. For the full (true!) story see www.physics.gatech.edu/frog.
Thanks to John Glen
