Removal of journal titles

We are increasingly perturbed by the attitude that WHERE something is published seems to be more important that WHAT research was actually conducted. The obsession with so-called ‘prestige titles’ is devalueing the great majority of carefully conducted studies that provide the foundation upon which all science is based.

We have therefore decided to remove journal titles from the outward description of our published work. You can read the title and the abstract, to decide whether this is a research paper you wish to read, rather than dismissing a paper as ‘not in the best journals’. You might say that this is not an issue, but tell that to those reading CV’s and conducting job interviews.
