Two week ago, I came across an interesting paper related to my area of research. Although I find the results interesting, some important issues have not been covered and I consider that a letter to the editor/ecomment is necessary.
However, I have a question for you dear readers. Now that we have numerous possibilities for discussing new research with twitter/facebook/blog, what is the best way to discuss/comment the results of this paper? Should I first submit a letter/ecomment and then publish a blog post ? Should I first blog about it and then submit the letter/ecomment? Are there any unwritten rules that I am unaware of ? What is the value of a letter/ecomment in our publications list?
