The State of Scholarly Publishing and later in Nefarious Numbers with Kristine K. Fowler, now has written a blog post called More reasons to support the Elsevier boycott. The boycott was mentioned in passing on El Naschie Watch here and here. In Arnold's latest, the paragraph that concerns us is this:
The Elsevier journal Chaos, Solitons and Fractals published more than 300 papers by the journal's Editor-In-Chief (58 in a single year). That these papers were not subject to peer review was later confirmed by the EIC's declaration that "senior people are above this childish, vain practice of peer review." Although the copious self-publication had begun nearly 20 years earlier, the EIC's retirement from the journal occurred only in 2009.
Thanks to the anonymous reader who pointed this out, writing
I suppose it was too much to expect a link to El Naschie Watch?
Not being cited when I should be bugs me, but I'm OK with this. Arnold's focus is Elsevier, not El Naschie. He didn't mention the great man by name, nor even link to his own aforementioned papers, so this doesn't seem to be a slight.
