Peer Review


I get a lot of fan mail that reads along the lines of…

Marxy — I love the site. I keep meaning to buy your album but I haven’t gotten around to caring enough. If possible, please review your favorite academic papers of 2005.

“Slow down!” I reply: It’s only August, and we know that the quarterlies save the hardest hitting research for the Holiday season.

But I just can’t say “no” to fans, so for Matt Davis of Columbus, GA, here is my short-list for 2005’s best academic papers:

Dennis, Sara. “O.P.P. — the Tradition of Chattel and its Impact on the Legal Foundations of Adultery Law in the Antebellum South.” Journal of Family Law 24:3, 24-45.

Price, Patton. “Naughty by Nature — an Investigation into the Primary Instinctual Causes of Adolescent Misbehavior.” American Journal of Child-Rearing 12:2, 1-16.

Ableman, Lewis. “Hip Hop Hooray — the Positive Long-Term Effects of Jumping-based Exercise Routines on the Articulatio Coxae.” Orthopaedic Review 7:Fall, 56-59.
