Notability[edit]

Stubbe is Distinguished Professor at MIT and is being honored with a prestigious award from the pre-eminent Chemistry society of the USA, for her pioneering work in researching enzymes. Her work is cited as being directly responsible for the development of drugs now being used in the fight against pancreatic cancer. She is a member of a small but significant minority - women who have excelled in one of the more arcane scientific fields. She is listed or cited on several other wikipages now in existence. She is completely worthy of being included in the Wikipedia.Raymondwinn (talk) 05:20, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

References[edit]

Another editor seems to think that Chemical & Engineering News, a highly respected and peer-reviewed journal of the American Chemical Society, is a Wikipedia page (possibly because it shows up in blue print on the screen?), and the quote from Dr. Nocera citing the influence of her work also comes from that journal, NOT FROM WIKIPEDIA. Please leave the references in.Raymondwinn (talk) 00:21, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

You need to link to outside sources, not just another Wikipedia page! I've already told you twice, that you can't just link to a wiki page!!! CTJF83Talk 06:33, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
Why in the world do you think I am linking to another Wikipage? What is it about Chemical & Engineering News (a JOURNAL, for crying out loud) that makes you think that it is a wikipage?Raymondwinn (talk) 06:49, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
The wikilink to the journal may have been the cause of the confusion. I've reformatted the reference. If possible, could you include the volume and issue number, the author of the article, and could you make sure that the title of the article is correct? Thanks. --RegentsPark (Maida Hill Tunnel) 08:44, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
Ok, I guess I was just confused by the linking to the Wikipedia articles. My apologies! CTJF83Talk 15:49, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
