Soooo professional

Dec 10 2009 Published by under Uncategorized

Yesterday I agreed to review a paper for a journal I had not previously reviewed for or published in. It's a decent international journal that is marginally related to my research foci. As I set up my account to view the manuscript I've been asked to look over I noticed an optional box on the web form that I normally ignore.

Salutation.

I think lack of sleep and this head cold are conspiring against my better judgment because after a brief internal debate, I wrote "MoFo" in the box, finished the form and and submitted it. Not 5 minutes later I got an email that started "Dear Dr. MoFo PLS".

I think I might start working more with this journal based on the fact that I will now laugh every time I receive an email from them.

*Cue the sound of postodcs worldwide saying "This idiot has a job and I'm still on the market? Fuck!"*
