Dear fellow-biomechanists,

I found Dr. Mel Siff's comments on today's publication practice and
the sarcastic (but not totally unrealistic) example provided very
much to the point and agree wholeheartedly.

Although it is recognized that, especially for young scientists, the
pressure is considerable to produce large amounts of publications at
all cost, it should also be remembered that a scientist will
eventually be judged by the substance, creativity, and quality of his
(her) contributions to a specific field.
