Q&A with Editage: What to do after your paper has been rejected by the journal
We’ve all accepted research paper rejections as a part of our academic publishing journey. But have you ever found yourself clueless about what to do after your paper has been rejected by your target journal?
Understanding the reason(s) for your paper’s rejection is essential; it may vary from flouting journal guidelines to mismatch with the journal’s scope. Figuring out the way ahead is more important -- how to deal with research paper rejection and how to get your research paper accepted.
Editage brings you in touch with a senior and highly experienced neuroscience editor, Nia, who guides you through your journey after rejection.
She first emphasizes asking one question to yourself: Why has the journal rejected my research paper? Question your writing, your methods, your results. This will help you pave your way ahead and formulate how to get your research paper accepted.
The next step is to accept the feedback you’ve received and move on. Take your time and understand the feedback.
Lastly, now that you know what went wrong, refrain from committing the same errors in your next submission.
