Responding to feedback

“Science is a process, but it’s also a community. Strive to be a constructive critic and a scientist who invites helpful feedback on your own work.” Advice on how to give and receive criticism from the latest #LTYS column from @ScienceCareers:

criticism is the lifeblood of scientific progress, we are ultimately humans who respond emotionally when we feel that our work is under scrutiny or attack.
