As he prepares to pass the torch as ToxSci Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Miller recounts what he has learned about toxicology, journals, and the Society during his six-year tenure and expresses his gratitude for the opportunity and for those who worked alongside him.
Dr. Miller discusses how constructive criticism, commentary, feedback, and discussion of results and interpretations through peer review are essential aspects of science.
Drs. Wikoff and Miller discuss the merits of the systematic review, which they say helps remove natural biases and presents “a comprehensive and even-keeled analysis of the published literature.”
Despite an article in The Atlantic claiming that the scientific paper is obsolete, Dr. Miller believes a properly written and edited scientific paper can capture the essence of the science. At the same time, the way papers are written and presented should continue to evolve.
