FAQ


Why is MY paper, which contains VERY important results, not included in the database?

Answer: We apologies to all authors who feel their work has not been considered. In the first version of the database, we included about one hundred papers picked solely from my memory (we had to start somewhere). I have surely forgot many important papers. The absence of a paper in MWDD does not in any way represent a judgement on the quality of any study. Simply let us know (or even better, create the .csv file for that paper and send it to us, see Database description) and the paper will be linked with MWDD.
