Authors, particularly inexperienced authors, may take comfort in knowing that manuscript rejection is common.1,2 One study3 showed that 62% of published papers had been rejected at least once. Authors should also be aware that many top-tier journals have high rejection rates.4 Since 2005, the rejection rate for unsolicited manuscripts submitted to CHEST has ranged from 87 to 91% (R. Irwin, MD; personal communication; September 2008).
