TitleReferee's report by Major Greenwood, on a paper 'The subjective judgement of the elastic and plastic properties of soft bodies; the "differential thresholds" for viscosities and compression moduli' by George William Scott Blair and Flora Margaret Valda Coppen
Date19 April 1939
DescriptionSectional committee: Physiology

The paper should be expanded as some of the conclusions are difficult to follow. It should be clearly shown that individual variations might have easily arised in random sampling. The conclusions are just, but not established. His suggestions should be communicated to the authors.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, 1939].
