BioRxiv support in citations[edit]

This project's feedback would be appreciated in this discussion, as this could greatly (and positively) affect biological citations! Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 22:15, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

Old merge proposal[edit]

Hello all! The proposal to merge Climbing and Falling Film Plate Evaporator with Falling film evaporator has languished without comment for over 3 years. I think at this point it's fair to close the merge proposal as uncontroversial. Unfortunately I have no idea what these articles are talking about. Any chance someone here could take a look and complete the merge (if appropriate) or remove the tags (if the articles are indeed describing distinct things). Thanks a bunch! Happy editing! Ajpolino (talk) 04:15, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

I consider these two evaporators sufficiently different to warrant separate articles for better understanding of the differing mechanisms used to maintain the advantages of film evaporation. I suggest the lack of response may also be interpreted of a lack of support for merging; and I will remove the merger tags. Thewellman (talk) 19:31, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
Great! Thanks for clearing that up! Ajpolino (talk) 20:32, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

WikiJournal of Science promotion[edit]

WikiJournal of Science logo.svg

The WikiJournal of Science is a start-up academic journal which aims to provide a new mechanism for ensuring the accuracy of Wikipedia's scientific content. It is part of a WikiJournal User Group that includes the flagship WikiJournal of Medicine.[1][2]. Like Wiki.J.Med, it intends to bridge the academia-Wikipedia gap by encouraging contributions by non-Wikipedians, and by putting content through peer review before integrating it into Wikipedia.

Since it is just starting out, it is looking for contributors in two main areas:

Editors

  • See submissions through external academic peer review
  • Format accepted articles
  • Promote the journal

Authors

  • Original articles on topics that don't yet have a Wikipedia page, or only a stub/start
  • Wikipedia articles that you are willing to see through external peer review (either solo or as in a group, process analagous to GA / FA review)
  • Image articles, based around an important medical image or summary diagram

If you're interested, please come and discuss the project on the journal's talk page, or the general discussion page for the WikiJournal User group.

Help with biotech investor article[edit]

Hi there, I'm looking for editors interested in biotechnology who might like to help improve the article for Randal J. Kirk, investor and CEO of Intrexon, a company that works to create biologically based products and projects that include the first FDA approved genetically altered food animal, genetically altered mosquitoes fighting viruses carried by the Aedes aegypti, non-browning apple, synthetic immuno-oncology, gasoline substitutes, crop protection, and improving bovine genetics. I'm looking to improve the article's readability and reduce WP:NPOV issues. You can see the full details of my edit request over at the Randal J. Kirk Talk page.

As disclosure, I do have a financial conflict of interest with this topic, as I am here as part of my work at Beutler Ink, consulting on behalf of Randal J. Kirk via Hill+Knowlton Strategies. As such, I do not intend to make any edits to the live article and hope other editors can review and make the changes they feel are appropriate. Thanks in advance! 16912 Rhiannon (Talk · COI) 04:30, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Hi @16912 Rhiannon:! Thanks for the note and for disclosing that. I saw your proposed changes and I'll get a chance to take a look later this week or this weekend (anyone else should, of course, feel free to respond sooner if they're free!). Sorry for the radio silence you got on Talk:Randal_J._Kirk. So many articles; so little time... Cheers. Ajpolino (talk) 05:07, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

In honor of the efforts to the late Milton Beychok[edit]

I would like to ask, in the memory of this expert late editor's contributions, that some of his articles and sections be reviewed, and reliable chem eng sources be added when necessary. While I have no doubt as to current accuracy of areas where this AIChE Fellow worked and illustrated, unsourced content begets unsourced future edits, and the current quality is at risk if the sections invite inexpert future edits. So, I am asking chem engineers to add good, reliable, worthy sources to this expertise-rich quality material. One such section, Schematic flow diagram and description at the article, Delayed coker, from which other material from him can be found, via his maintained User page. Note, Beychok authored a couple of books, and never cited them, as far as I can tell. It would be perfectly fitting (and academically appropriate), where his published work overlaps with his earlier compositions, to use these citations to support the texts. I will try to add, via bullets, other articles to look at to which he contributed, and any of his work that I can identify. Cheers, User:Leprof_7272.
