@AdamHDomby It's worse for altmetrics, another impact metric that tracks online sharing of articles. For example, this physics paper has only 8 citations in 6 yrs but a whopping altmetric score because of an unfortunate choice of acronym in the abstract. h
@thebedfordfox Say it as you see it Dave! Johnson is indeed a Copper Nanotube (need O level chemistry or see this link https://t.co/OkbIFyBVFp for decode 😉). The opposition offer and the opposition leader need to be radically different and more realisti
True, abstracts are the only section carefully seen by editors, while handling the received ms, besides abstract also read by most researchers, they reward citations. #AcademicTwitter #phdchat
Hadn't seen this before. When cultural differences and a desire to be brief collide spectacularly
If you had to abbreviate 'copper nanotubes' in a paper, would you go with the same option these authors went with? Perhaps further evidence that in scientific writing abbreviations can be over used! https://t.co/pGCOQyaHaL

I was telling people about this paper recently and they did not believe me. Thank you for reminding me and posting the link.
Reading the abstract of this paper and thinking "Surely you don't need density functional theory to observe/understand cunts. And why does it matter if they are suspended or standing?!" Maybe I've missed the point. https://t.co/a74nEZmzxv
for all you lovers of CuNT https://t.co/FfaNH99TP8
When abbreviating copper nanotubes, avoid the elemental symbol for copper.
My favourite was the copper nano tubes paper - I’ll leave to guess what it was. Answer here: https://t.co/ML9Ja7OcvR
@SuperScienceGrl @moietymouse Well, there's always the classic Copper (Cu) NanoTubes debacle of a few years back, lol. I've pondered occasionally if this was the result of complete naivity or if they knew EXACTLY what they were doing...https://t.co/K80DTDW
If you want to start the day well, read the abstract of this paper on copper nano tubes. https://t.co/wCSG8GHCOa
I also like this paper about copper and bismuth nanotubes. Read. The. Abstract. https://t.co/EgXVcPyXVy
When you know what's coming this really shouldn't be as funny as it is ... https://t.co/6dyJMy2jFc
Slightly sad that my favourite paper about copper nanotubes (https://t.co/qK52Eqbdrq) has only been cited once.
It is my hope that one day I will be as cunning as these scientists were when they wrote their paper: https://t.co/eW4TYGdd3b
The risks of abbreviation in a second language or fully aware abuse of that fact for a laugh? Warning - rather rude https://t.co/E0dUwVA1PG
