Hi Just a comment, it seems that the paper you mentioned have already been published at :http://www.scientific-journals.co.uk/web_documents/4010206_ground_w... in 2012.
Also I read it and the fact that you seem to think it is not acceptable English is interesting for me ( I am not a Native English Speaker, I am French ) , the English seems to have acceptable quality, at least for a science paper ( this is not a novel ) , or am I wrong? There may have mistakes in the paper but from what I saw it seems OK.
I mean it's science, not Elizabethan Theater Play ...
Or is this a sort of new way to prevent people to publish? A sort of 'racket' in which only American-English native speaker authors would have a clear advantage on all the other authors? Should there be a need for English language Preciosity when writing science documents?
