One thought on “Weekend reads: When peer review fails; gender imbalances in citations; COVID-19 science under scrutiny”

  1. This comment might be controversial. I always wonder about why is there always a comment about gender citation issue in science in the weekend read. I think there is much more further problem like geographical bias issue like authors from south east asia or any other country that are not represented. They always tried to publish to top tier journal but only papers with an inclusion of an international author (usually some prof. In a western countries) will be received and reviewed.

    I also think that why the gender citation issue in social science and humanities papers were not touch upon?
