Rejecta engineerica December 18, 2013

Obviously my Latin is rusty.  Probably because I never had Latin, except for a few dinosaur names I learned way back when.

As I was cruising the internets today, I came across a journal titled Rejecta Mathematica…which I can’t seem to access, even though it’s supposed to be open access.  It prints only papers rejected by other mathematics journals.

I wondered what such a journal in engineering would be called as I can’t find the Latin word for engineering anywhere.  However, there are a couple of journals I suspect have already taken on the premise.

It made me realize, as I was contemplating this, that I have never had the occasion to publish in one of those journals, and I hope I never have to.  Not that I have a prolific publishing history, but I haven’t been rejected for a publication yet.

Except I’m worried about that happening for the first time.  I’m currently working on a paper that I think has a realistic possibility of being rejected.  It’s not that it’s not a solid paper, but that the venue is rather selective.

I guess I’ll keep my fingers crossed that it doesn’t happen.  I really don’t want to have to put this particular paper into the Rejecta Engineerica, even if that’s not its official title.
