A new journal, Writer’s block, and Lady Gaga

There is a new journal around and here is a number of reasons you may choose to submit to it:

  • You can send your manuscript here without suffering waves of anxiety regarding the eventual fate of your submission. You know with 100% certainty that it will not be accepted for publication.
  • There are no page-fees.
  • You may claim to have submitted to the most prestigious journal (judged by acceptance rate).
  • It is one-of-a-kind. Merely submitting work to it may be considered a badge of honor.
  • You retain complete rights to your work, and are free to resubmit to other journals even before our review process is complete.
  • Decisions are often (though not always) rendered within hours of submission.

Welcome to the Journal of Universal Rejection!

Even this paper would get rejected.

But not this submission by Lady Gaga (sort of) to the Molecular and Human Genetics Retreat 2011 at Baylor College of Medicine.

    Hahaha! Perhaps I should send a paper to this prestigious Journal. Also, the Lady Gaga video was priceless.

    Great post Nassif.
