Quotes from the science blogosphere

If your results sound amazing, take a deep breath & think of several tests that could debunk them. Then do those ten tests. If they survive, go to bed & think of another batch of tests.
Keith Robison at his blog Omics! Omics!, heavily criticizing an article published in BMC Genomics. A cool fact: the editors of BMC Genomics invited Keith to formalize his post (and his comment at the article's website) into an article that was recently published!

Another quote, from the comments section of that same post:

(...) one of my great frustrations with peer review is spending a non-trivial amount of time constructively criticizing a manuscript, only to see it resurface in all its flawed glory at some other journal. Gah!
