TitleReferee's report by Henry Hallett Dale, on a paper 'The autonomic nervous system of the earthworm' by Flight-lieutenant Norman Millott
Date28 February 1940
DescriptionSectional Committee: Zoology

Recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. The work is 'important, interesting and well carried out'. The author discusses and interprets the results throughout the paper, rather than concentrating discussion at the end. Suggests the author not use underlining unless for taxonomic naming purposes, and instead should use italics, but only where special emphasis is absolutely necessary. Suggests the author not repeat interpretation for each section of the paper. Refers to work of Walter Holbrook Gaskell. Suggests shortening and recasting the paper.
