    What do you mean, returned without review? You mean the editor rejected it with no review?


  2. Dude, get a fcuken grippe IF=5 means you sucke asse

    If this happens to you, it is a probably a good time to look for one of those “alternative career paths.”


  4. DrugMonkey Says:

    Exactly Isis. It came up on the Twitts. I was rawther surprised.


  5. Isis the Scientist Says:

    Wow. Dude.


  6. Physician scientist Says:

    As an associate editor (essentially a super-reviewer) at a society level journal (IF 6), I wish there were more editorial rejects. Some of the papers I get to review are really not good.


  7. Anonymous Says:

    Come on IF 5 is not that bad


  8. Joat-mon Says:

    Below IF5 would be pretty bad. I review a bunch of papers for IF4ish journals but I would not consider sending my stuff there. I don’t think having those publications helps anyone’s career/R01 renewal.

    And year those papers do help many people to get their grants. Amazing how wrong you can be, isn’t it? And yet so confident…..


  10. Joat-mon Says:

    Really? I don’t understand — I thought the NIH is supposed to be funding the best science.


  11. Cashmoney Says:

    Journal IF and “best science” have nothing to do with each other..


  12. Joat-mon Says:

    Ha, that’s an interesting idea. Please explain.
