Darwinian selection

April 25, 2013

The proposed arrangements for research publication in light of the Finch report would seem to suggest a new hierarchy for academics. We already appear to have goldfinches and greenfinches, but what of those whose research isn’t worth publishing chaffinches? And those who habitually deliver less than they are wont to claim bullfinches? I remain uncertain, though, about the role of the twite.
