paper review complain 

Kind of. They got accepted the first time though. Then they self plagarized at a new journal. I rejected that. They resubmitted with a new experimental setting glued on but no effort to connect the two sets or experiments, explain the rationale of the second expt and bad writing in general so I rejected that. Now they've submitted again.

I have now bought three sets of brakes for my car. All three are the same part number. However, the first two didn't include wear sensors and the third one did. Hopefully i'll get new brakes this weekend. My rotors are really lipped.

paper review complain 

Just got asked to review the same paper for the third time. I kind of want to say no.
