The name of the blog has its origins in lectures I give on referencing for university assignments. Not surprisingly, undergraduates sometime struggle to recognise that papers published in certain journals are deemed more worth that articles appearing in ‘lesser’ publications. To avoid potential offence to any particular periodical I would stress that “An article appearing in Nature is generally considered more authoritative than one published in the Journal of the Left-handed Biochemist“. As of now, the latter is no longer fictional; the sentiment, however, is probably still true.
