Cold fusion/Recent sources

Job for an enthusiastic student: add to each of the papers below, where it exists, a convenience link so that the paper may be read easily, for people without academic or library access. Most papers may be found on http://lenr-canr.org

In 2004, the United States Department of energy reviewed the field of low energy nuclear reactions, and, compared to the 1989 view, there was much more support for the hypothesis that nuclear reactions were taking place in "cold fusion" experiments, than there had been in 1989, when the panel was almost unanimous in rejecting the idea, with maybe two holdouts. 2004 may have been the nadir of cold fusion publication under peer review, see Rothwell analysis at lenr-canr.org, based on the bibliography of Dieter Britz.

This source list is intended to look at publications after the 2004 DoE review, which appeared in December, 2004, so it begins with 2005. We will examine, as well, the publishers of journals and books.

Note: it would be useful to know what responses these various papers obtained in the journals. Those responses are not necessarily found easily and often will not be available on-line. So if any student or interested person can look up these articles and look in subsequent issues for responses, and describe them, perhaps on Talk, here, at first, it would be very useful. It helps to understand if a review or original research paper, for example, was accepted generally or not.

Adding links to that actual journal page, and to preprints or copies of the papers, when they are available, would help with the use of this resource.

Publishers[edit]

  • The Journal of Scientific Exploration publishes material consistent with the Society’s mission: to provide a professional forum for critical discussion of topics that are for various reasons ignored or studied inadequately within mainstream science, and to promote improved understanding of social and intellectual factors that limit the scope of scientific inquiry. Topics of interest cover a wide spectrum, ranging from apparent anomalies in well-established disciplines to paradoxical phenomena that seem to belong to no established discipline, as well as philosophical issues about the connections among disciplines.'[1].

  • Encyclopaedia of Electrochemical Power Sources
  • Inderscience Publishers
  • International Journal of Nuclear Energy Science and Technology[2]

Peer-reviewed papers and academic publications[edit]

Britz provides for papers in his bibliography, his brief summary or comment, sometimes it is merely the paper's abstract. Papers listed by Britz that are not about cold fusion, but perhaps bubble fusion or piezonuclear fusion (which are hot fusion if they exist) are not shown.

Bolding of reviews of the field[edit]

Below, sources are bolded which are reviews of the field or some aspect of the field, specifically. There are some sources which are not specific reviews, but which mention or use cold fusion as an example of "pathological science," which seem to be more in the nature of tertiary sources and which don't examine the topic itself. They appear to assume bogosity. The reviews bolded, however, are of varying depth.

A paper like that of Shanahan (2005) is partially a review of an aspect of the field, but almost solely from the point of view of presenting an opposing hypothesis, and then, of course, responses are a form of review of the criticism. These are not bolded. Most papers in the field, to some extent, review work that came before, but only broader reviews of the field or an aspect of the field are bolded.

Quibbles: The papers "Controversy in chemistry: how do you prove a negative? The cases of phlogiston and cold fusion" (2005), "Indicators of failed information epidemics in the scientific journal literature: a publication analysis of polywater and cold nuclear fusion (2006) appear to be papers on scientific sociology, not reviews of the science itself; and there is one critical Letter, published in 2010, that is a response by Kirk Shanahan to a 2009 paper in the same journal, and it was copublished with a response by other scientists in the field. This was not counted as a "review." It is a response to a review, just as the copublished paper was a response to the response.
