About this book

Language: English

From the editor's note:

"This article is not sensu stricto a scientific article but it has an important bearing on an incident in the History of Indian Palaeontology and Stratigraphy which changed and tightened the review and editorial system. lt opened the eyes of the scientists and the reading public to yet another type of adulteration, the pollution of the scientific database which has a ramifying effect unless not nipped in the bud. As the author, Professor S K Shah, observes that he was himself a dramatis personae and that this account is his own personal ‘View from the Gallery’, minimal editorial modifications have been made. The views expressed are personal to the author who is fully responsible for them. The Palaeontological Society of lndia does not want to hurt the sensibilities of anyone (living or dead) while maintaining its function of high standards of publication. It is hoped that the spirit in which the account is written will be helpful to young scientists and alert them to pitfalls that lie along the road of a person's academic career and how one can (nearly) get away with wholesale contamination of the data with profit to oneself."
