I have a very strong amateur interest in a niche subject (the history of computational labor processes). I think have a somewhat novel idea for research that builds on ideas that seem to be gaining currency in journals like Technology and Culture
. I'm not an academic, and have very little academic background. What should I know if I decide to prepare an article for submission to a peer reviewed journal for the first time? [more inside]

What are some good, persuasive (and good natured) ways to respond to folk who have zero faith in the scientific method but who happily follow every scam and pseudo-scientific nonsense that cross their path? [more inside]

A couple years ago I remember seeing a pretty damn hilarious itemized list of things a professor/researcher had to do to correct/update an article for publishing in a journal. It was 100 some odd items long, starting with inane requests, then veering into how some other author had disagreed with the original one and now the original had to prove it out. Research could've been related to frogs or physics+light - can't recall.
I think it was on Scribd or another one of those sites that makes stuff look like a pdf/paper document.
Anyone remember this?

copyright/amademic publications filter: When someone writes a peer review report on a paper you hope to publish, and that review reaches you in its full original version, what is your position on quoting from it, or all of it, in, say, a book? Could you still quote from it, or all of it, if you didn’t mention the name of the reviewer?

Can anyone recommend books or articles that provide information on the process of peer reviewed, academic publishing? Bonus accolades if it deals specifically with Theatre.

I enjoy reading the Knight Science Journalism Tracker
, an MIT website that gives timely peer review to popular science journalism. Can anyone recommend similar sites or blogs that do the same for other types of news. I'd love to find a site that uses a similar format to both cover world events and critique their coverage at the same time, for example.

I'm looking for dissertations and theses on a particular subject. UMI's Digital Dissertations
, which as far as I can tell is the largest central resource, won't allow me to search for anything before 2003. Do I have a good single source option apart from visiting a university library and using Web of Knowledge
? Coverage at Google Scholar
seems a bit scattershot, but maybe I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth.

Blogging application that includes line-numbering? I'd like to publish content for peer review, in chonologic blog format, with automatic line numbering, so that people can comment, by line number, on my writing. Obviously, the line breaks and numbers have to be the same for everyone. AfterDinner.com offers this functionality, though it isn't really a blogging application. I'm a veteran Blogger user, and willing to do a little bit of creative coding (eg: light hacking of Moveable Type). Any help?
