Comment on a Paper

You can comment on papers in our journals by writing a discussion.

Discussions should:

  • Be no more than one journal page
  • Should pertain directly to the paper being discussed
  • May include one figure, table or equation.

The executive editor will review the discussion and determine if it should be published. If so, the author will submit a formal reply. Our editorial staff will edit both the discussion and the author's reply and post them with the paper (with notification ofthe discussion) in the online journal's table of contents.
