By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

I think this site is worth noting: https://ancienthebrewgrammar.wordpress.com/2011/03/26/journal-submissions-part1/

I mean what can be learnt from stories about rejected essays. :)

    Thanks for the link @Xanthippe , very interesting :)
    I am not sure how the reviewers dare to say ( “Yuck!” ) in their comments, myself, I will never submit a manuscript for this rubbish journal , and I will write a report for the scientific community about this comment

    @Science24, fortunately, it has never happened to me. :)

    I think the reviewer should be open-minded and should have expounded the things where the writer should improve and/or beef up. In that sense, feedback can be considered valuable at some point.

    @kindgnice, such reviewers are a bliss. :)

    I came across this articl this morning and I think it is worth reading @Xanthippe . it is about predatory journals that recruit fake editors with an empty CV. Shame on the scientific community. The study was done by polish scientists ;)

    Oh, yes, my friend sent me an article in Polish. :) Ha ha ha. I am wondering how people can believe in falsifications like that.
