Reviewers Assigned

With a date-stamp of 5 October, the reported status of my probability paper has become Reviewers Assigned, which indicates that some person or persons have been asked by the editor to review the paper. If he, she, or they decline, then I will later see a change in the time-stamp but the same reported status. If he, she, or they accept, then the status will become Under Review.

The change in status from Editor Assigned was relatively swift; an editor might more typically take a month before deciding whether to send a paper to reviewers or instead to issue a desk rejection, which rejection is the fate of the majority of papers sent to academic journals (setting aside the various vanity journals).

I will hope that the task of reviewing is quickly accepted by competent reviewers, and certainly that it is not again undertaken by reviewers who will look only inside the box of conventional theory in attempting to understand a paper that primary considers matters outside of that box.
