I have also published a couple of articles in Applied Optics...
how tat came about is an interesting story in itself.  However,
if the high powered academics with university affiliation take
grab the ball and start running with it (funded research) they
will overwhelm the previous work quite quickly.  Whether "classic
UFO scientsts" get mentioned or no will depend upon whether the
sightings invesigated by the "newby" scientsts are old cases
(e.g. predating 1998) or new ones for which there has been little
or no investigation by the "classic ufologists."  And, yes,
career researchers could be forgotten.
