This rebuttal responds to the article "Getting it quite wrong" (published in this journal issue of QHR). My work is described as "amassing experiential descriptions," simply aiming to "reproduce the original experience unaltered," naively claiming "that the fundamental question of phenomenology is to understand what it is like to have this or that experience" and other such injudicious points. I take issue with these claims. Husserl is quoted as supportively stating that "phenomenology was from the beginning never supposed to be anything except the path to a radically genuine 'strictly scientific metaphysics...

BACKGROUND: Current blood pressure (BP) measurement guidelines recommend certain patient requirements, especially keeping still for 5 min. Some patients cannot comply. My colleagues and I have reported accurate performance of the Welch Allyn SureBP algorithm for BP estimates during voluntary patient motion. No validation studies for involuntary patient movement (tremor) BP readings have been reported. This paper reports the validation of the Welch Allyn Home BP monitor, the 1700 Series, which contains that same SureBP algorithm, and the results of tremor testing as well...

There was a time not that long ago when scientific communication happened only in print, with research papers, letters to the editor, and all other exchanges just appearing in issues mailed weeks or months after the papers were formally accepted. Learning about this research required a personal subscription to specific journals, a well-funded library, or attendance at conferences to hear the latest results and read newly released journal issues. Even as the web came into existence, the idea of using this new platform to make a scientific journal available around the country or even the world was simply not considered...

Twenty years ago, I arrived in Puerto Rico from New York City to establish a neuroscience laboratory and research program on extinction of conditioned fear. The lab's first research paper appeared in the Journal of Neuroscience (Quirk et al., 2000) and has been cited >900 times. The success of this project in Puerto Rico far surpassed my original expectations. Therefore, I thought it might be useful to identify the factors responsible for this success, with the hope of facilitating the development of laboratories in diverse settings...

INTRODUCTION: The ability to reflect on practice and context is an essential professional behaviour required by occupational therapists and included within practice guidelines and standards. Research has demonstrated the benefits of reflection within specialist areas of practice. However, there is a lack of research into reflection within, and across, work place practice. The aim of this study was to understand how occupational therapists define, conceptualise and engage in reflection in practice...

Everything included in this overview is a list of facts without analyses, which makes this a purely factual overview. The circumstances of the preparation for the foundation of the Croatian Dermatovenereological Society - the Croatian Medical Association (hereafter CDS-CMA) and the journal Acta Dermatovenerologica Croatica (hereafter ADC) Geopolitical changes in former Yugoslavia following 1990 and the Homeland War (1991-1995) led to new circumstances in almost all areas of social activity and the need for a restructuring and further development of professional physicians associations in our Homeland...

PURPOSE: To review the Journal's coverage of chemical radiosensitizers. METHODS: I have reviewed all the possibly-relevant papers that appeared in the Journal prior to 1970 and since 2010, plus the most highly-cited papers from the intervening years. I excluded papers that dealt only with oxygen as a sensitizer, that referred to sensitization of phototoxcity or hyperthermia, or that described interactions with antineoplastic agents unless they clearly distinguish between additive toxicity and radiosensitization...

A brief history of quantum theory is given to illustrate the barriers to progress caused by preconceived ideas. The biases in my own thinking which I had to overcome to approach the right answer for the right reason are discussed. This is followed by a personal autobiography illustrating how I have led a life of serendipity with no real sense of purpose. Chance events have shaped my life. The algorithms for which I am best known are briefly discussed. Then highlights from the many applications of theory to excited states, bonding in ice, spin properties and magnetism, (e,2e) shake-up spectra, and organic reactions are mentioned...

There were 106 articles published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (JCMR) in 2017, including 92 original research papers, 3 reviews, 9 technical notes, and 1 Position paper, 1 erratum and 1 correction. The volume was similar to 2016 despite an increase in manuscript submissions to 405 and thus reflects a slight decrease in the acceptance rate to 26.7%. The quality of the submissions continues to be high. The 2017 JCMR Impact Factor (which is published in June 2018) was minimally lower at 5...

The monarch butterflies so abundant around the small pond are slowly disappearing. Tomatoes from the vine that curled its way up the drainage spout are now lined up on the kitchen windowsill to capture the sun's rays. Summer draws to an end as my father's life also draws to a close.As part of my narrative, I have included, in italics, entries from my journal from this time.

"Swift fly the years", wrote Alexander Pope. I, for one, feel that 2018, my first full year as Editor-in-Chief of Chemistry-A European Journal, flew swiftly indeed. Looking back, the editorial team has accomplished a lot in 2018: We published nearly 2400 papers, more than 200 of which were Reviews, Minireviews or Concepts. Notwithstanding the growth in submitted and published papers we were able to handle manuscripts rapidly. Median times from submission to acceptance were 36 days for primary research papers (all issues from January through September), which is as fast as Chemical Communications (37 days in the same time period)...

From that time AgNPs become one of the most accessible and important antibacterial agents in our world, thousands of papers published regarding investigating all aspects of these materials. When the time elapsed and novel methods contrived to follow the fingerprint of AgNPs in the in vivo models, some critical concerns and arguments also appeared between researchers about the safety of these compounds for living cells. The paper by Dehvari and Ghahaghaei published in Volume 108 International Journal of Biological Macromolecules, pages 1128-1139 (Dehvari and Ghahghaei, 2018) suffered from some errors from safety concerns to obscurities in the results and the application of paper for applicable uses in medicine or elsewhere...

On January 21, 2017, I received an E-mail from Herb Tabor that I had been simultaneously hoping for and dreading for several years: an invitation to write a "Reflections" article for the Journal of Biological Chemistry On the one hand, I was honored to receive an invitation from Herb, a man I have admired for over 40 years, known for 24 years, and worked with as a member of the Editorial Board and Associate Editor of the Journal of Biological Chemistry for 17 years. On the other hand, the invitation marked the waning of my career as an academic scientist...

When CPT:PSP was launched in 2012, I wrote in my inaugural Editorial1 about the importance of integration and combination of the disciplines of Pharmacometrics (PMx) and Quantitative Systems Pharmacology (QSP). Over half a decade later, it seems like a good moment to take stock and assess how the journal and the model-informed drug discovery and development (MID3) communities have done in bringing together PMx and QSP.

I am writing this in China and, looking from my hotel room, I can barely see beyond the buildings on the other side of the street. It's pollution; it obscures vision, and exposure has. adverse effects on health. I think 'pollution' is an excellent metaphor for what we are currently seeing in academic publishing as a result of the seemingly inexorable increase in the number of predatory publishers and the 'fruits' of their labour, the predatory journals and predatory conferences.

Plagiarism is a serious form of scientific misconduct. Literal meaning of the Latin word "to Plagiare " is "to steal or to kidnap". The act of taking the writings of another person and passing them off as one's own is plagiarism. It implies intellectual theft in the world of medical writing. The "copy and paste" culture is becoming rampant all over the world after the advent of electronic publications, and Indian medical literature is no exception. This editorial will enlighten aspiring authors and readers about various forms of plagiarism and reasons for engaging in plagiarism...

Reports an error in "Settling for less out of fear of being single" by Stephanie S. Spielmann, Geoff MacDonald, Jessica A. Maxwell, Samantha Joel, Diana Peragine, Amy Muise and Emily A. Impett ( Journal of Personality and Social Psychology , 2013[Dec], Vol 105[6], 1049-1073). In the article, the Fear of Being Single Scale used in Study 3 was in fact a version adapted for those currently involved in relationships. In error, it was reported that participants completed the exact same Fear of Being Single Scale as in the other studies in the manuscript, with items generally worded as though participants were currently single (e...

I abandoned my original career choice of high school teaching to pursue dentistry and soon abandoned that path for genetics. The latter decision was due to a challenge by a professor that led to me reading Nobel speeches by pioneer geneticists before I had formal exposure to the subject. Even then, I was 15 years into my career before my interest in rodent genomes gave way to mapping cattle genes. Events behind these twists and turns in my career path comprise the first part of this review. The remainder is a review of the development of the field of bovine genomics from my personal perspective...

As an initial member of burn medicine in China, I am lucky to participate in the activity of writing paper for the journal to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the founding of burn medicine in China. It is a chance to introduce my clinical work, laboratory study, and teaching. I review the development of burn surgery to make some points in the transformation and development of burn surgery, some suggestions for better coordination between burn surgery and critical care medicine during emergency support for mass burn casualties...

I feel very much honored that I was invited to contribute to a special issue for you, Heiri, in the prestigious Journal Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces. Moreover, it is with great pleasure that I add a few pages on the topic I was involved with during my active research time, i.e. on the interaction of nanoparticles with biological systems, for this special issue. The research topic continued somehow into the time of my retirement, but with a broader view of nanoparticles, with my engagement in the National Research Program 64 on "Opportunities and Risks of Nanomaterials" of the Swiss National Science Foundation...
