Hyperarchival Nothingness

When we go through the painstaking process of adding nothing to the archive, we might as well send stuff to the Journal of Universal Rejection. About the journal:

The founding principle of the Journal of Universal Rejection (JofUR) is rejection. Universal rejection. That is to say, all submissions, regardless of quality, will be rejected. Despite that apparent drawback, here are a number of reasons you may choose to submit to the JofUR:

–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).

–The JofUR 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.

At least they’re honest. They also have a (pretty great) blog. (Thanks to Tobias for this one.)
