Rejecta Mathematica
Posted by John Baez
Sick of getting your papers rejected?
Tired of useless arguments with referees, like this?
In conclusion, although a good paper of this kind would be interesting, I don’t believe that the present manuscript meets the required standards for acceptance in the Journal.
You are right here. It is way too good for it! I kick myself for being nice and submitting this paper to your narrow-minded pretentious journal! It won’t happen again.
Then publish your rejected papers in Rejecta Mathematica!
I have four questions:
- Has anyone actually submitted anything to Rejecta Mathematica?
- How will it look to have such publications on your resumé?
- What is the impact factor of this journal?
- A little quiz question: who actually wrote the letter I quoted above? Guess, then use Google to find out.
(A tip of the hat to Blake Stacey for putting Rejecta Mathematica on Eureka, and to Count Iblis for pointing me toward the letter quoted above.)
Impact Factor
At least one of your questions is answered in their FAQ: the impact factor is currently zero.
