Well, it depends on the subject in question. The matter of fact is that the
medical applications have a narrow scope and appearance models in general
are not widely discussed. I was thinking about something very specific
My supervisor would say that titles are extremely important when writing a
paper because they determine whether the reader will just skimp or actually
go to the next level which is the abstract. I know that long titles are
tiring and are specific enough to make you realise that they are not
necessarily applicable to you. Overstatements and generalisations help.
