3 papers rejected in just over a week

While this blog mainly focuses on papers, books and chapters that have been published and conference papers that have been presented, it is also important to acknowledge that these gains are not always made easily. Today marks my third paper rejected in just over a week! The papers were on three completely different topics, submitted to three completely different journals across the globe, with three completely different sets of co-authors. Our team works hard to undertake high quality research, and write high quality papers, but journals consider a range of factors when recommending publication. The reviewers' and editors' comments were very helpful, and we will take these into consideration to develop our work further. I have written this blog entry because it is important to share all aspects of the journey of research, not just the successes (we have had two journal articles published in 2018 already).
