    I took it upon myself to contact the American Scientist in regard to their
    publishing a paper on progressive myopia. There response, in part, was:

    We do invite articles, usually based
    on peer-reviewed publications. If you have read of some interesting
    published research on this topic, we'd be grateful to be directed to it
    so
    that we can investigate.

    So, if one of the ³peers² posting onto this group wishes to edify the public
    at large, contact them at . I do not think that being a
    member of Sigma Xi is necessary in order to be published. Be forewarned.
    They will probably want at least the verisimilitude of being unbiased.

    Publish in the American ScientistAnd why would one who wrote a peer-reviewed paper on
    progressive myopia want to have it published in the
    American Scientist?

    That may be a key point. The primary requirement to full membership in Sigma
    Xi is that the prospective member published scientific research papers.
    While I do not think you have to be a member to have a paper in American
    Scientist, I think that they will want a primary researcher to author any
    such paper.

    P.S. No one noticed thy using "there" instead of "their".
