    1. Research Excellence Framework, the mechanism by which the basic public funding allocation to Colleges is being calculated. One of its metrics is publications in *high impact* journals. Acceptance of papers unfortunately is not always solely based on the quality of the research, but also the networks of editors and referees involved.

    2. Last high impact journal I suspect submitted to was a dispiriting experience. Out of three so called expert referees the only useful comment was that a hyphen was in the wrong place. idiots the lot of them.

    5. In a perfect world they would actually "read the paper" and before they put pen to paper. It would save alot of aggro.
