【转】史上最狠的论文评审意见

2010年Environmental Microbiology杂志刊登了一部分杂志的审稿意见,让人在学术研究严肃、认真的前提下充分体会了下,审稿人的幽默与诙谐,有的审稿意见甚至让人啼笑皆非,下面列举了一部分经典的审稿意见,让大家也见识一下史上最狠的评审意见,其他的内容见文后附件,有兴趣的可以继续寻找。

PS:翻译纯属搞笑,不喜勿拍!

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.

这文章太不给力了…请万勿发表。此外,建议锁定该作者的电子邮件ID,避免此人日后继续投稿。。。

 

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.

写作水平和展示的数据无敌了,哥不得不提前下班,匆匆回家,然后花时间思考下人活着是为了虾米。。。

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

拒发,必须的。本文的漏洞比我爷爷网眼背心上的洞还多!

I would suggest that EM set up a fund that pays for the red wine reviewers may need to digest manuscripts like this one.

哥建议贵刊(环境微生物学杂志)成立基金,以买单审稿人审阅时可能需要的红酒,哥上火呀。(StarStarStarStarStar Great! – Ju Sun)

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

这篇文章问题多多,写作格式尤其可怕,简直摧残了哥身体里求生的意志。

Hopeless – Seems like they have been asleep and are not up on recent work on metagenomics.

哥真的不能淡定了。显然作者要么睡着了,要么完全没跟上宏基因组学的前沿发展。

A weak paper, poor experimental design, comparison of sequences using different primers, no statistical analysis possible, carelessly written, poorly thought through.

文章很弱。实验设计很锉,使用不同的引物序列比较;统计分析不置可否;写作粗犷。彻头彻尾的悲剧亚。。。

I agreed to review this Ms whilst answering e-mails in the golden glow of a balmy evening on the terrace of our holiday hotel on Lake Como. Back in the harsh light of reality in Belfast I realize that it’s just on the limit of my comfort zone and that it would probably have been better not to have volunteered.

迷人的傍晚,金色的夕照,如果此时哥在科莫湖的假日酒店那铺洒着余辉的露台上,我会欣然同意审阅这篇文章。然而,在贝尔法斯特残酷的日光里,我想刚才我那么想是被酒店啥的爽到了,文章么,咱能不提这事行吗。。。

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

哥从本科开始就不看这种操性的文章了。

The lack of negative controls. . . . results in the authors being lost in the funhouse. Unfortunately, I do not think they even realize this.

阴性对照实验的缺乏导致作者在游乐场里完全迷失了,不幸的是,我看他们现在还没意识到。
