The Scientist has reported on the publication of Dr. Stephen Meyer’s paper “The Origin of Biological Information and the Higher Taxonomic Categories” in the peer-reviewed journal Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington. The Proceedings is published at the National Museum of Natural History at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.
There has been much hand-wringing and complaining from Darwinian activists unhappy with the paper’s publication. Contrary to their claims, this paper went through the standard, peer-review process as reported by The Scientist.
In an interview with The Scientist, the Proceedings editor Dr. Richard Sternberg confirmed that the article had been subjected to the standard peer-review process and that the three peer reviewers of the paper “all hold faculty positions in biological disciplines at prominent universities and research institutions.”
