Android : Stuart Cantrill Anonymity is powerful. Sometimes intoxicatingly so. Too many reviewers hide behind this veil, and it's unfair to expect authors to live out in the open. Single blind, Double blind, triple blind, whatever. We need to implement them.

Android : Stuart Cantrill Now keep in mind why I asked that question in the first place. This person's response was although double blind can look like a good idea, "we can tell from the wording which country the paper is from". Almost verbatim.
They were pretty high up the ladder in publishing. (3/n)

Android : Stuart Cantrill It was obvious that the reviewer had not read the paper. They mentioned something that was completely untrue, which they would have know had they read it carefully.
I was furious. So keeping this issue in mind, i asked this person in publishing about double blind. (2/n)

Android : Stuart Cantrill Yes. Definitely this. Let me tell you a short story about an experience I had with someone involved in the publishing process.
We once received a personal remark from a reviewer. Something that was directed at the science, sure, but also very pointed at a particular author. (1/n)

Android : Andrei Yudin Is this a US thing? Because I use it all the time, and people here tell me that it's odd. 🤷🏾‍♂️ It's what we were taught in high school. We treated 'thrice' and 'twice' with the same regard.
Why is 'twice' special?
