New Publication at the Open Journal of Astrophysics

Time to announce another publication in the Open Journal of Astrophysics. This one is the eighth paper in Volume 4 (2021) and the 39th in all.

The latest publication is entitled A Detailed Description of the CAMSPEC Likelihood Pipeline and a Reanalysis of the Planck High Frequency Maps. The authors are George Efstathiou and Steven Gratton of the Kavli Institute for Cosmology at the University of Cambridge.

Here is a screen grab of the overlay which includes the abstract:

This is a long and detailed paper, running to 92 pages in PDF form. Our Editorial process relies on referees being willing to volunteer their time to read and comment on submissions and this one in particular required a great deal of effort. I am always grateful to referees but in this case I am even more grateful than usual the diligence displayed during and the many useful comments received. I know who our reviewers are and they know who they are, but shall remain anonymous!

  1. Referees are the unsung heroes – or the unnamed but loudly pronounced villains, depending on the report (and therefore on the paper). In either case, I have found the standard of refereeing in astronomy high and the reports aiming to be helpful. (Although once a referee criticised me for being a student!?) Are your referees anonymous by choice or by journal policy?

      Referees are anonymous unless they specifically choose not to be, which is the case only for a minority. I know who they are, of course.
