He's apparently withdrawn his paper for publication...for his own sake he needs to be able to verify his work and come up with a positive result. I'm sure that he's sweating bullets right now - no researcher wants to be put in the position where his work is publicly disavowed by his own funder....He has a lot of good reasons to make this right.(post 20)

    my comment
    Cort a lot of folk are under the impression that this paper is witheld from publication not withdrawn . Are you saying that the paper has been withdrawn totally and if so can we have clarification of this ie via a link or something(post 23)

    I agree withheld is a better term.

    The CAA has posted this address you can use to register your dismay about the Alter paper being put on hold.

    olib@od.nih.gov

    They also stated on their Facebook site that they are pushing for the immediate publication of the paper.

    Here's a petition as well

    Cort,

    Perhaps you can paste in a link to the CAA statement pushing for immediate publicaton of the NIH paper. I'm probably right at it but Paul Bunyan has embedded an an in my forehead. OK, it just feels that way.

    Thanks,
    Otis
