In regards to peer reviews of 'Feathered Dinosaurs and the Origin of flight'



I was asked to pass this along...

Dear Tracy:

Would you please post the following letter in response to Luis Rey's?

Luis Rey:
The things that you have reported are not true.

All of the papers in The Dinosaur Museum Journal went through the formal
peer review process.

Eberhard "Dino" Frey was invited to peer review two of the Journal papers.
He accepted, and provided professional and constructive comments. At no time
did he suggest this material not be published, or make the type of remarks
you stated.

None of the papers in The Dinosaur Museum Journal Volume One, "Feathered
Dinosaurs and the Origin of Flight" were submitted to the Journal Nature for
consideration. The old "Archaeoraptor" paper was submitted, but the new
"Archaeovolans" paper is entirely different, and was not submitted to
Nature.

You should wait until you have seen the Journal instead of making uninformed
criticism.
