...a 2 page-rejection letter for my manuscript right after I opened my PC
That was definitely no fun at all *sigh...*
Anyway, as people in Japan always say "Ganbatte!" to encourage others , which means "Fight!" or "Don`t give up!", I will use that word too for my self :rolleyes:

May all of us blessed with good data and more importantly good (and many) publications :)

Hi Nikou,

Don't be screwed up by the editor or the reviewers. Keep fighting till your paper is accepted by a journal. It's life, most of us have experienced and will experience this.

Sorry to hear that your paper was rejected. I read in a book once (I believe it was "Einstein 1905" by John Ridgen or so) that some of Einstein's 1905 papers (such as the paper on relativity) were rejected as well. My point is that a rejection doesn't mean that it is a bad paper. Don't give up!!!
"You can give somebody a book on 'How to ride bike' and then test that person on that knowledge. Even if that person gets an "A", it doesn't mean that he or she can ride a bike."
---this is what I am telling myself when I get a bad grade....as long as you don't loose your passion, you'll be fine.....V

Thanks everyone!

I know that this paper rejection is just a phase we have to go through.
In fact, now that I`m trying to read the letter again, the reviewers did have some good points.
Although for some points I still couldn`t agree with their opinions :rolleyes:

To Lostinthelab, ganbarimashou ne :)

To Wolverena, I`m no Einstein, but it`s very kind of you, thanks a lot :)

For someone who's just gotten a 2 page-rejection letter, you're quite upbeat nikou, so I guess you already have the gambaru spirit. For you and Lost-san:

WOW!!
Is it yours?? So, your wish had been fulfilled, I guess?
Now I`m thinking to buy one too, and paint the eyes if I get my paper accepted this year, hahaha

By the way, I`m just desperately encouraging myself and right now I can`t even use my brain to work.
Hopefully I can recover (not sure if this is the correct use) very very soon.

Thanks for the daruma, Casandra :rolleyes:

This is the usually thing for a researcher's life. Don't give up! Try another one! I remember I had one paper and my boss tried Nature first, then go to Science, then go to Physical Review letter. It was accepted by Physical review letter when I almost forgot it...
My another one was already rejected but my boss thought the comments were not so bad and didn't know why they rejected it. So, my boss asked me revise the manuscript and send it again to the same journal and it was accepted very soon!!
So, don't think too much of the reviewer's comments. Different people has different points and experiment foucs. Just try to revise the manuscript according the reviewer's comments which you think they are right and send it to another journal.

Wait a min! Does this rejection has anything to do with Nihon-go? Scary :) Beside the 'rejection', the other thing common between U 2 is the language. . :rolleyes: is there any association? :(

Hi nikou,

Nope it's not mine, it's google's :) but I do have one tho not signifying anything. If it were mine, then it would be forever one-eyed...or I'd paint it with lots of eyes all over its face.....goodluck......and get your brain to work now :rolleyes: ...

Its part of research. Don't take it too hard on yourself. Try other journals and hopefully the manuscript will be accepted.

Its better to have good data and good publications than to have many publications.

People do all sorts of cheap things to get publications. They use contacts to get things published which are crap.

Good Luck !!!

I hope they at least gave you the service of a decent review and justification for rejection.

Hello Nabi, what did you mean about the association?
I just assume LostintheLab is staying in Japan (or maybe is a Japanese? I don`t know :blink:), so we just used the common phrase in Japanese :)

Haha!
I guess you`re right, two eyes aren`t enough for us, huh?
Actually, yesterday was a holiday in Japan, so I took a break, stayed at home, and practiced dancing the whole day. I thought nothing about the paper :blink:
But today, here I am facing the real life all over again. Come on brain, let`s do something! :blink:
