Abstract

Describes the fate of 101 manuscripts rejected by the Journal of Documentation during the years 1981–1989. More than a quarter were subsequently traced in the literature. The majority of re‐submitted articles appeared in journals with a lower impact factor. The limitations of the study and the methodology are acknowledged.
