In his response to The Genealogical Adam at the Dabar Conference, Jack Collins cited an insightful blog by Jon Garvey on Original Sin, as if it was a journal article. I have been wondering about the significance of this footnote citation for two months. One of the strange realities of the conversation between theology and science is…
Insightful. By analogy it would be similar to a science conference where not only the presented papers were published, but all the conversations in the breaks were recorded and published with them with equal weighting. It would contain a few useful insights, but the majority wouldn’t. By the way, I’m new here and am already deeply impressed by the humility you show in admitting a mistake and rectifying it.
I officially request a DOI for your Original Sin article, your first reference to the 2004 Nature paper on genealogical ancestry, the series you did on Sailhammer and a Genealogical Adam, and any other key articles you think are important for me to cite.
PS: What cross post? Do you mean a link?
Yes. The process, for you should be:
Make a PDF of the article, including or not including comments (as you wish).
Upload PDF to Zenodo, fill out meta data, and publish (include it in the Peaceful Science “community” there).
Include the DOI (and link) in the original article, either at end or beginning, so people who read it know how to cite DOI.
Then cite away. For example, my Sapientia article is here: https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.1328264. Scroll down and you will see citation models on the right panel. Click the DOI icon to get HTML code too.
Wow, that is really cool. I think this could be very useful for those of us at that are at teaching institutions, where our contributions are less likely to be a string of journal articles but we want to show engagement with other scholars.
If a forum topic or blog post comes up you want to cite, let me know and I’ll make a DOI.
If you write something elsewhere, and think it will be helpful to us, make the DOI and add it to the Peaceful Science community in Zenodo. You can announce it here too. Credit is important, especially for those of us in academia. Present this to your peers as an interdisciplinary micropublishing effort. I will not likely to be enough to get tenure on its own, but it will hopefully give you credit.
For any forum in which you participate, if you would like to be identified as a contributor/author, let me know. In general, for forum discussions, I will only identify those who specifically request it to be authors.
Josh, I was dubious about doing that, because the only real value of linking to the piece at all is to do with its being an early mention of the theory, warts and all. I got the “MRCA” thing either from Opderbeck or Rohde, so that’s how the paper-trail runs.
