Water Water Everywhere
Posted by apgaylard on November 14, 2007
The recent special issue of the journal Homeopathy on ‘The Memory of Water’ gave rise to a lot of skeptical comment. A significant amount of this was facilitated by a Journal Club that Ben Goldacre ran at www.badscience.net, with the permission of the publishers (Elsevier) and editor (Peter Fisher).
It’s pleasing to be able to report that one of the two ‘letters’ I submitted will be published by Homeopathy in the January issue. It looks like it will be in good company. The status of the remaining submission is unclear at the moment, though I am hopeful that it will make it in the end!
[ed. News just in; the remaining letter will also be published in the January issue.]
It is good to see that Homeopathy and its editor are fostering an open engagement with those of us who were unconvinced, to say the least, by what we read in the special issue.
I am also looking forward to seeing what the authors will have to say for themselves.
Finally, I must admit to being somewhat bemused at the prospect of being published in Homeopathy. As I work in a fairly obscure field, it probably has the highest impact factor of any journal that I’ve been published in.
