So I'm reviewing a manuscript for an academic journal slightly outside my field but on a topic I'm more than familiar with. Otherwise I wouldn't be reviewing it, right?
As I read the literature review and theory section it comes to me. Hey, I published something on this only a couple of years ago, and in a pretty damn good journal, yet I don't seem to be cited. And get this, the author brags that this study the first to examine this subject. Which is fine -- if you happen to exclude my article.
