@Nanobright:, I've had a brief look through this article, and it's looking pretty solid to me. Nice work! I have a few suggestions that may help it successfully pass the GA process: (1) Doublecheck to make sure all content in the body of your article is cited. The majority of your content looks well-cited, but you have a few sentences without any sourcing, primarily in the 'Research, career, and service' section (plus a few of Briscoe's listed awards). I think you should consider cutting the whole first paragraph of 'Research, career, and service', as this paragraph is just a summary of the rest of your content (and it's already been covered in your article's lead section, right?). (2) Organize your list of Briscoe's 'Selected publications' to make it easier to read through (it seems pretty random at the moment). Organizing it alphabetically by author surname might be the simplest route. (3) Check your list of references to ensure the bibliographic information is accurate -- sometimes it gets jumbled when you generate citations, and I noticed that the Robin Arnette reference looked like it needed attention. Good luck with this nomination! If you have any questions, just ask. Alanna the Brave (talk) 20:22, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
thank you so much @Alanna the Brave: for taking the time. I have been having a little trouble with the citation addition and formatting lately (people have been helping out here and there when they find errors) but I'm concerned things might be linked to using the new beta editing platform. Will def go back through this one and also clean up the the Research section. There are some addt'l details I'd like to add on her research findings especially on a class of opsins in a different wavelength regime than is currently mentioned but I haven't yet the time yet to read those papers. I'll also go ahead and organize the publications by thematic area or timeline like I've done on some other pages. will likely ping you quickly again once that's wrapped up so you can take a second look. thanks again Nanobright (talk)
