|Title||Referee's report by Robert Kidston, on a paper 'On the structure of Sigillaria scutellata, Brongn., and other Eusigillarian stems, in comparison with those of other Palaeozoic lycopods' by E. A. Newell Arber and Hugh Hamshaw Thomas|
|Date||29 November 1907|
|Description||No clear statement regarding publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. |
Is not happy that the author has not referenced a short paper on the subject published recently by the reviewer. 'I have no doubt the authors were much annoyed by my note anticipating their discoveries, but I cannot help that as I knew nothing of their being engaged on a similar subject'. Does not think the Royal Society can publish a paper professing to contain new discoveries, when some of these have already been published without reference in the current paper.
Paper is long and repetitive. Refers to work by Robert Kidston [Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, Vol.41, p.545-546, 1905; Proceedings of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, Vol.27, part 3, p.205-206].
