We welcome comments from readers that summarize data or experiences, or that review other papers or books that amplify the original article.

A response may be of any length, and may include additional materials such as figures or tables. Short responses (under 250 words) will be reviewed by the Editor-in-Chief of the original article. Longer responses and those that include additional material will be subject to more rigorous screening. All responses that are accepted for publication will appear as separate articles, but will be cross-linked to the original article.
