Unqualified screening reviewers

I found that most review screening editors are fresh PhDs, often lacking deep experience and diverse knowledge about the subject they review. They can't distinguish between what is the most pressing need to the field and where is the current state of knowledge stands. By checking the published articles, it looks like they prefer fanciness and confusing complexities over real concepts and solid conclusions. It's pity that our manuscripts are being judged by individuals without years of bench experience and lacking field expertise. They may come from big institutions but that doesn't mean they are matured enough to pass judgement about manuscripts/work (whether to send for peer review or not) that originates from well experienced scientists.

extremely painfully long process. The manuscript sat with the editor twice for almost 4 months. While during the second review the reviewers asked only for a broader discussion of some points, the editor asked for additional experiments that took almost 5 months.

The manuscript was rejected on the grounds of insufficient originality. In my opinion, this statement illustrates the level of the Editor's incompetence

Nature’s new sub-journal, spanning medical geophysical majors and some minor majors, if it reaches 7.4 in the first 9 months of the year, it may reach 15 next year. The difficulty is lower than that of the original sub-journal, but the quality of the articles on it is very high, and the difficulty of receiving it is still relatively large. From writing to drawing, the high requirements are comparable to those of other journals. The writing should take into account the non-superior readability, and the diagrams should be eye-catching and clear enough. If there are more significant discoveries and progress in the profession, you can try this. But be fully prepared before taking the shot. My two agreed, one opposed (unprofessional and non-fatal), replied to the fight, cross-evaluated, and lost the objection. There are 8 figures/4000 words (about 10 pages) and 4 figures/2000 words (

A third-rate magazine of the Nature Publishing Group, I personally feel that the quality of physics articles is average (similar to the quality of the rapid communictions of the pr series). Because of the title of nature, it has attracted many eyeballs. The impact factor will be relatively high, so post articles on it. It may be of great help for the evaluation of job titles, awards, etc.

About

The journal began life with the purpose to publish “rigorous and comprehensive papers that represent advances of significance to specialists within each field”, as well as to serve communities that don’t have a dedicated home in the Nature family or researchers seeking publication in a broad journal. Another founding principle was to offer a platform for multidisciplinary works, given that, “the number of truly multidisciplinary primary research journals can be counted on one hand”. We wish to continue to meet those needs for authors and readers.
