论文同行评审中的奇葩审稿人意见

发表在PeerJ 上的一项调查研究中,列出了调查中获得的一些非常“不专业”审稿意见条目

小编看到几乎每条都挺毒,比如

“This paper is, simply manure”

“What the authors have done is an insult to science”

还有一条更让人崩溃的是:
“You should look closely at a career outside of scinece”
这是直接劝作者退出学术圈了啊……

所以,想想如果你平时投稿时只是收到一些普通的拒稿邮件,哪怕就文章内容批评几句,已经是多么幸运的事!

然而……
还有大量更毒的审稿意见,有些时候连审稿人自己都被“毒”到了,以下是从2001年至2011年,《Environmental Microbiology》每年都会发布一些审稿意见集锦中收集的。

毒舌搞笑篇:

1. Reject – More holes than my grandad’s string vest!

拒发。漏洞比我爷爷的网眼背心上的网眼还多!

2. “Done! Difficult task, I don’t wish to think about constipation and faecal flora during my holidays! But, once a referee, always and anywhere a referee; we are good boy scouts in the research wilderness. Even under the sun and near a wonderful beach.”

搞定了!太不容易了。我才不想装着一脑子便秘和粪便菌落来度假。但是,一朝做了审稿人,永远都是审稿人,到哪儿都是审稿人。在科学研究的荒漠中,我们是勇敢的童子军。即使在洒满阳光的沙滩上也是。哼!

3. “This paper is desperate. Please reject it completely and then block the author’s email ID so they can’t use the online system in future.”

这篇论文烂到家了。请彻底拒稿,然后封了作者的账号,免得他日后继续投稿。

4. “The writing and data presentation are so bad that I had to leave work and go home early and then spend time to wonder what life is about.”

写作水平和数据展示让我整个人都不好了,我不得不提前下班,早点回家,甚至开始怀疑人生。

5. “The biggest problem with this manuscript, which has nearly sucked the will to live out of me, is the terrible writing style.”

这篇稿件的写作风格太糟糕了,审得我都不想活了。

6. “The presentation is of a standard that I would reject from an undergraduate student.”

就算回到本科生时期,我都会拒掉这种水平的投稿。

7. “This paper is awfully written. There is no adequate objective and no reasonable conclusion. The literature is quoted at random and not in the context of argument. I have doubts about the methods and whether the effort of data gathering is sufficient to arrive at a useful conclusion.”

这篇论文写得太烂了。目的不明确,结论不合理。引文都是乱引的,跟正文的论证完全对不上号。我怀疑这样的实验方法,也怀疑他们收集的数据不足以得出有效结论。

8. “Season’s Greetings! I apologise for my slow response but a roast goose prevented me from answering emails for a few days.”

节日快乐!回复慢了,真抱歉。有一只烤鹅妨碍我,让我几天都没顾得上回邮件。
见识过了审稿人的毒舌和幽默,再来见识一下审稿人怎么夸人。但当审稿人遇到非常棒的论文,也会给出衷心的好评。

好吧,为了鼓励大家继续好好写论文投论文,我们最后还是放些点赞的审稿意见吧

1. “Very much enjoyed reading this one, and do not have any significant comments. Wish I had thought of this one.”

这篇论文读起来简直是一种享受,没有任何意见。这么好的点子我当初怎么没想到!

2. “There was little I could think of to improve this nice paper.”

这篇论文好得我都不知道要怎么改了。

3. “This is as solid a write up as I have seen, many spend much more time and space to say considerably less. It is a perfect example of a compact report.”

这是我见过的最确凿的报告,许多人花更多时间精力写出来的比这个差多了。作为一篇翔实的报告,这是一个完美的例子。

4. “landmark paper on P. putida physiology.”

假单胞菌生理学研究的里程碑

5. “It is always a joy to review manuscripts such as this. Well conceived, well executed, well edited. Clean. Pristine. From start to finish.”

评审这样的稿件是件人生乐事:构思周详,实施得当,写得漂亮。干净,纯朴,从头至尾。
