There is a new blog post entitled, “Transdisciplinarity and the hazards of peer review.”
Paul D. Thacker and Jon Tennant, “Why we shouldn’t take peer review as the ‘gold standard,’” Washington Post, August 1, 2019, https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/why-we-shouldnt-take-peer-review-as-the-gold-standard/2019/08/01/fd90749a-b229-11e9-8949-5f36ff92706e_story.html
There’s a reason I call Economics the evil stepchild among the social sciences, where Human Science is their ignored, long-suffering mother. With almost exclusively a quantitative emphasis, indeed, economists go the opposite way from human scientists. They don’t care about the story, only about the superficial numbers, that helps to obscure a messy reality that doesn’t conform to their ideology.
