Sociology's Self-Imposed Moral Dilemma.
Orum, Anthony M.
American Sociologist, v21 n1 p72-75 Spr 1990
Suggests a dilemma confronts sociologists in the review and publication of their works. Claims that relying on peer review impedes the practice of open and fair judgments because social networks bind people to one another. Observes that peer review can limit new and critical thinking. Urges that manuscripts be judged on their own merits. (NL)
