投的一篇稿件经过大修,小修然后终于被审稿人通过(一审后一个审稿人已经说没意见了,二审后另一个审稿人也写了 acceptable),前前后后忙活大半年,眼看要毕业的节骨眼,结果被编辑拒了……既然编辑不想接收为什么一开始不拒绝?还让人白折腾,有人遇到过这种情况吗?我看杂志有申诉途径,申诉管用吗?

这是第一个审稿人的第一次意见,文章修改一次后他没有再提新的意见,我们觉得应该是代表默认合格的:

“In general the paper is well written and the data are presented appropriately. However, the authors should take into consideration the following remarks….”

第二个审稿人的第一次意见:

“Still there are some observations and inconsistencies that should be amended, these are listed in order of appearance on the text:…”

大修以后第二个审稿人的第二次意见,提到了 acceptable,然后给了一些修改语法的小建议,至此女友认为小修以后就能通过:

“Authors have greatly improved their manuscript and amended all of the reviewer’s comments in an acceptable form.”

结果小修以后就收到了编辑的拒信,并且说是审稿人拒绝的:

“This decision was based on the comments of external experts who carefully peer-reviewed your paper.”

编辑的拒信第一次写的:“基于审稿人的意见,所以拒绝”,我就懵了发信去问。

It is really a bad news for us to receive a rejection letter of the manuscript (No.XXXXX), especially after we revised it according to all the reviewers’ comments. It is accepted by all the reviewers that the XXX(研究内容) would be beneficial for a wide range of researchers and readers, as there has been no report on the xxx(研究内容) conditions. More importantly, we found all the reviewers satisfactory with our revised manuscript as shown in the review report, which made us confused about the rejection. Therefore, we hope you could reconsider the decision on the manuscript, and give us a chance.

然后编辑的回信换了一套说辞,变成了“经编辑讨论拒绝”:

We made this decision based on the opinion of our editors.

目前情况是这样,文章已经另外再投。

稿子被拒,大多事出有因,只是编辑部不对你说,深层次的原因可能只有做决定的几个编辑清楚了。

不展开看我就能得出结论:编辑有权。编辑有最终决定权。审稿人通过了,给你的意见虽然正面,但是审稿人也可以给编辑发建议,有些你看不到。另外,编辑也可能是你这个方向的大牛,对你的论文有一些意见,但是没打算跟你说。你可以跟编辑交流,但是我觉得希望不大,毕竟审稿人通过了但是编辑不同意,那么编辑的决定一定是想好了的。
