- How many accepted papers did win the Nobel Prize?
- How many rejected papers did not win the Nobel prize?
- How many rejected papers are utter batshit nonsense?
Edit: had forgotten about submission fees. Yes, those were real. $100 was a lot more then, particularly for a grad student. Competion from open-access journals has been so good that people are forgetting how terrible it was. But paywall journals are still very, very bad. IMO it is irresponsible to use one.
