Nature highlighted our recent article (Brodnik et al., 2021) on fracture diodes, previously featured in Physics. This project was funded by the collaborative grant “Designing Microstructures for Engineering Toughness”, DMS-1535076.
Note that the journal ignored a request to mention all authors and institutions in the piece. Did anybody ever suggest that some journals are biased towards “elite” schools?
