Thank you anonymous reviewers

I recently had a paper rejected in Political Analysis. I fully expected a rejection given the journal’s high ranking and had submitted it for the sake of feedback. As I’m sure academic readers know, getting someone to read our papers can be hard. Unsurprisingly I got a rejection notice earlier today.

Surprisingly, all reviews were actually constructive feedback and, while critical, kind. To add strangeness to the whole ordeal, the process took less than a month from submission.

Since I have no way to contact the anonymous reviewers, I post my thanks here. Thank you anonymous reviewers. I wish reviewer #2, and here too I’m sure academics know the type I am referring to, should be more like you.

Please keep it civil
