Around the Internet - 8/31

A warning about the perils of preprint repositories.

Statistical evidence that writing book chapters isn't worth the effort. (Though caveat: the author also doesn't find evidence of higher citation rates for review papers in journals, which I had thought was well-established.)

One person who finds things to like in the publication process (I know, I don't link to these often).

Neuroskeptic argues that we don't necessarily want to increase replication, just replicability. (Agreed, but how do we know if replicability rates are high enough without conducting replications?)

Did Chris Christie really talk about himself too much in Tampa? 

Other Cognitive Science
Cognitive load disrupts implicit theory of mind processing. So maybe the reason young children succeed at implicit tasks isn't because those tasks don't require executive processing (whether they require less is still up for grabs).
