Rejection in Academia

In Inside Higher Ed there is an article on the role of rejection in academia. I wrote virtually the same thing in a PS article back in 2006.

This made me think of the fact that "advice" type articles or blog posts repeat the same stuff, generally without talking to each other at all. That's not entirely a bad thing, since there are so many different audiences that a single article won't reach more than a small proportion of academics. But it is funny to read stuff that is original--in the sense that it is not plagiarized--yet just giving the same advice and offering the same insights.

I have to figure there are people who have stumbled across my article and immediately thought the same thing.
