So, for those of you who do not know.....according to these researchers they have officially sequenced the genome of the animal better known as Bigfoot!!!
However, no peer-reviewed journals would print their research.....
...so, instead they decided to begin their own research journal, now called DeNovo.....
....All subsequent readings of this research in this new journal have researchers consistently saying that these two researchers are incorrect and has Leonid Kruglyak (a Geneticist at Princeton) saying, "I've only read the abstract and conclusion [of the paper] and neither makes any sense."
So, the question is, what on Earth is the benefit of creating your own journal for a report that was refused entrance into a scientific journal. Is this a case of cognitive dissonance or rather is there the slightest eensy-weensy chance they are right while the preponderance of scientists who reviewed their work for the other journals are wrong?
Now, I have no issue with individuals being allowed to publish these findings in the regular journals, I think they should just be published with all of the rebuttals that reviewers are able to come up with. However, being denied and starting your own journal, of which the first edition only contains this article, seems to be petulant whining to me.
Any thoughts....?

Ketchum says her DNA sample was obtained from a blueberry bagel left in the backyard of a Michigan woman who claims that 10 Sasquatch creatures visit her property on a regular basis.
With this high level of rigorous scientific study I think the established journals found themselves unworthy of such a lofty craft and should leave such publication to their betters.
