Few of you will be surprised that I have some thoughts that I feel compelled to share with ALL THE WORLD. Today , those thoughts are about editor's notes. 1/10
Being asked to edit a journal is an immense privilege and an incredible power. You are making decisions that could literally affect whether or not people get to keep their jobs! 2/10
The correct response to this, it seems to me, is to feel incredibly humbled and to pledge to do your best, be fair, and use your best judgment on the quality of the work. 3/10
Who I like or who I don't like CAN'T be part of the equation. I've both published papers from people I think are assholes and declined to publish papers from people I love like family. 4/10
The reason for this is that it is NOT MY JOURNAL. The journal belongs to the field. They've entrusted that journal to me and above all else, I need to respect that trust. 5/10
I'm not perfect. I've effed up, I'm sure. But I have to do my best to make it about the work. I have work I want to champion and I have, but my grievances have no place anywhere near the journal I edit. 6/10
I can get anything I want put on the SPPQ website by sending an email. Hell, I could #MeToo all over the SPPQ website if I wanted to. But I don't, because that would be an abuse of power. 7/10
This isn't about whether my grievances are based on truth or whether I feel I need to right some wrong that has been done to me. The journal is NOT the place for it. 8/10
Understanding this should be the bare minimum of what we expect from our journal editors. If you abuse your power and we all see it, we don't need an investigation. You should lose that power TODAY, not in January. 9/10
And to wrap up, I want to make one thing perfectly clear: I believe @msGSXR
