Disappointed there's no actual submission e-mail address - I was hoping for a bot that would send "Thanks for your submission!" and then seven days later send you a very cleverly-written rejection notice.

Yeah, but is it indexed on pubmed?

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that this submission will be rejected and it might have something to do with the quality.

Mimics the relationship I (and thousands of others) have with Science.

Some people in my office were shocked by the naïveté of a scientist who submitted a paper to Nature without lobbying the editor first.

Metallica said it best. Ugly but true at the top tier of scientific publishing. Of course, I was that naif.

great idea for a journal.
I s'pose they reject all advertising as well?

So, will this be one of those journals that's bundled in packages to academic libraries?

(it might be less misleading and counterproductive than other more successful journals, I would speculate; but I am not in academia).

Finally! An academic journal I'll be able to read cover-to-cover!

I heard Bovine University was starting up a journal a lot like this, actually.

Submissions should be emailed to the Editor-in-Chief.

If it doesn't take a stamp I'm not interested.

My favorite: The Journal of Unpublished Results. Do click on the two submission links.

After submitting your work, the decision process varies. Often the Editor-in-Chief will reject your work out-of-hand, without even reading it! However, he might read it. Probably he'll skim. At other times your manuscript may be sent to anonymous referees. Unless they are the Editor-in-Chief's wife or graduate school buddies, it is unlikely that the referees will even understand what is going on. Rejection will follow as swiftly as a bird dropping from a great height after being struck by a stone. At other times, rejection may languish like your email buried in the Editor-in-Chief's inbox. But it will come, swift or slow, as surely as death. Rejection.

Snort! Love it.

hattifattener: I'm kind of disappointed to see that Rejecta Mathematica only had that one issue. I was hoping that they'd be more of a regular thing.

FAQ: The "Snake Fight" Portion of Your Thesis Defense (which was posted on the blue not long ago) will probably also be appreciated here.

Unfortunately, due to overwhelming volume and the impact of the economy on my finances, I will no longer be accepting new rejections. I thank you for your disinterest and lack of time, and wish you better success in rejecting other authors.
posted by Slap*Happy at 7:26 AM on January 23, 2011


Ahh, academic journals! The publishing venue where authors agonize over acceptance and have the same number of readers whether they get accepted or not.

Sounds like your thesis was rejected by the mods.

So...this is different from other literary journals how, exactly?
