does not fit the general readership
My latest submission of my paper, to a yet more specialized journal, has met with a fate similar to that of my previous submissions:
The advisory editor suggests that the paper does not fit the general readership of [this journal] (see his short report below).That advisory editor writes
I suggest to the author to submit his paper, which certainly deserves an outlet, to more specialistic journalsand then recommends two in particular. So I will review the guidelines for each, and try to decide to which of them I will make my next submission. I take some solace in the fact that, while my paper is indeed being rejected, editors are suggesting that it truly ought to be published in a respected academic journal.
