## Rejected Articles Can Be Rejected Again!!!

Posted by C Moon on December 7, 2007

While surfing around the internet, I’ve found an interesting posting. Have you heard of Rejecta Mathematica?

It seems that there are many steps that a mathematics article has to go through in order to be published. And in the process, many articles fail to survive the intense reviews from peer mathematicians. Only selected few get to see the light. Rejecta Mathematica is a new home for the “abandoned” papers. They are revived to see the world.

In order to be published in Rejecta Mathematica, the paper has to satisfy several requirements. First, the mathematician has to include a letter describing the reasons why the paper was rejected and any other flaws the paper might have. Submissions are not peer reviewed, and results are required to be neither correct nor new. But if the paper is considered to be either incomprehensible or not mathematical, the submission can be rejected. What a tough world!
