I got a paper rejected today. No errors found. One reviewer gave a green light, but another said that the contribution was low and the editor decided to stick with the second one.

Feels bad. No errors. Still a rejection. Yes another half a year is lost.

Seems that it's impossible to start a new topic even in mid-tear journals. Have to lower standards even more.

this isn't biology, your being the primal source is secured by an arxiv post and you probably can't make money with your findings

"No errors" is the absolute baseline for being not complete trash, not an indication that it should be accepted. "No errors" is the "nice guy" of reviewing: It is just next to "shit".

another said that the contribution was low
this on the other side is valuable feedback

impossible to start a new topic even in mid-tear journals
theoretical cs
If it is new, go to a conferences like everybody in CS and get your feedback there

What's stopping the person who reads your paper to evaluate it from claiming it as their own?

Rejection is a part of the process I think, I would guess that's how it is with journals anyway. I guess you would just apply to the next one. They're selective of what they publish. I'm just talking in general though, I don't know how it is in the science world

It is, didn't mean to ask it in a demeaning way, just wondering how things working in academic fields, since it's not where I'm (nor am heading to).

Good luck OP, don't be disheartened by a failure. Rant it for awhile, and onwards.

I got a rejection on fucking Christmas. Came from Australia so I guess it was the 26th. Reviews were 2/3 good but the journal had like a 10% acceptance rate. Basically if its a top 5 journal you'll need all the reviewers to agree. Even a reject and two accept w/ minor revisions has a high probability of rejection by the HE.

Just got my first journal manuscript accepted with revisions. I had 2 reviewers accept and 1 decline. I guess the editor thought 2/3 was good enough.

The revisions are due on Monday. My adviser is reviewing my changes now.

I'm kinda worried because I did not make a bunch of the changes they requested. But I have good reasons for not doing them and I explained in my comments to reviewers. I guess we'll see what happens.

I regret to inform you that your paper on, "Extraterrestrial Objects and Their Effects on Anal Stimulation" was denied for publication due to use of confidential data used by the United States Air Force.

I had a really great idea for something in my field. It didn't require any ressources either so I worked on it in my free time. When I was half way done after like 4 month of putting every free minute into it, someone else published the same Idea I had. Literally everything was the same. Still mad about this
