Thomas Mailund is "miffed." The cause: not very nice reviews from a journal where he submitted two papers. Not only were they not nice, they were short, not constructive, and the editorial staff hasn't made a decision yet on whether to accept the paper. Even if he resubmits it with changes, he still might not please them. "Of course reviewers are permitted to not like a paper and to not find it interesting," he says, but "telling me that they do not find the results interesting, and then telling me to resubmit is just crazy! How can I make any improvements if that is all the criticism I get?"
