Minst.org eJournal

The results of all Mednansky Institute research are published in Minst.org eJournal, MieJ, or other peer-reviewed journals.  In the event of external publication, MieJ posts reference of such work and how it relates to the institute research work.  MieJ or Minst.org eJournal shall be the preferred designations used to refer to works published herein.  As example, - Diauxie Revisited: The Case of Fructose, MieJ, 2004, M. Crasnier-Mednansky - with link to http://minst.org/ejournal_diauxie_revisited.htm.

MieJ is supported in part by federal government grants, private individual and corporate donations, and the charitable contribution of work by volunteers.  Accordingly the knowledge gained by research work is drafted in standard report format and conveyed, without encumbrance, to the public for reading, analyzing and commenting upon.  Research reports of work performed within the institute are reviewed internally.  The internal review process may require additional review from external scientists before publication in MieJ.  All reviewers' comments are incorporated with the published report.  Open peer review of research is invited and solicited, and all comments and reviews that are scientifically sound, justified and accurate are, without concern for disparagement of the work, published alongside the work discussed.  All reviews or comments are screened for relevancy, and all reviewers' credentials are published.

It is the responsibility of all authors who publish in MieJ to keep their previously published work up to date.  This means taking into account any future peer submissions that legitimately challenges their work and post responses to such challenge.  Likewise, it is also the responsibility of the author to keep informed of any externally published work that ignores or challenges data published in MieJ.  In this case, the author is obligated to update the published work by way of an addendum that either refutes or acknowledges the external work.
