I'd love to see your take on it, guys. In published papers, please.
Sure, if you can tell me how to publish a paper in that field without having a degree in that field. I can't even publish an article in Archaeology Today without having a degree in archaeology.
I think you can. You don't have to have a degree and don't need a university to back you up (well, if you are willing to pay for the submission yourself). If the paper is good, if the science is sound, they take it.
But yeah, iguana_tonante's post is pretty much arrogant and condescending.
