Field of Science

The pace of review

One of my manuscripts will shortly enter its 7th month of being under review. Apparently one of the three reviewers keeps promising to send in a review but never does. Now the 4+ months a different manuscript languished under review seems speedy.

Ray Kurzweil is convinced that the pace of science is increasing exponentially and will continue to do so. I think he's neglected one rate-limiting step in the process.
