Scientific papers sometimes obscure simple ideas. In the most extreme case, a paper will get rejected if the idea is presented in too simple terms (it happened to me more than once and the paper was praised once the simple parts had been obfuscated). Also, they need to come with ample evidence for why an idea works, strong theoretical guarantees and lots of experiments. This is all needed as a safeguard and it’s really really important. But it often hides the basic idea. Alex Smola
