Recently my wife suggested that I lighten up when writing my editorials. In response I prepared a very humorous (at least I thought so) but somewhat frivolous discussion of the peer review process. I sent it to one of my Associate Editors for review. (Yes, even my editorials are peer reviewed.) The recommendation came back REJECT. I exercised my prerogative as Editor and decided to try for two out of three, using two more of my Associate Editors. Those recommendations came back REJECT. I considered five out of nine but realized I had run out of Associate Editors. I hope any of you who have had a paper rejected by AJA or another publication will be encouraged and try again. At least you have not faced the humiliation of being rejected by your own editorial staff.
