scibri (2544842) writes "In a study of more than 80,000 bioscience papers, researchers have illuminated the usually hidden flows of papers from journal to journal before publication.
Surprisingly, they found that papers published after having first been rejected elsewhere receive significantly more citations on average than ones accepted on first submission.
There were a few other surprises as well...Nature and Science publish more papers that were initially rejected elsewhere than lower-impact journals do.
So there is apparently some reason to be patient with your paper’s critics — they will do you good in the end."
