English abstract

The system of scientific publication subjects the submitted manuscript to review, and it is common that many studies are rejected, for various reasons. Some researchers improve the study and achieve publication in another journal, while others abandon the effort and the work remains unpublished. The rejected papers that eventually achieve publication are cited more often than those accepted without changes, because the peer review process improves the quality.

Spanish abstract

El sistema de publicación científica somete los manuscritos que recibe a revisión, y es habitual que muchos trabajos sean rechazados por diversos motivos. Algunos investigadores mejoran el estudio y logran que otra revista lo publique, otros abandonan y el trabajo queda inédito. Los trabajos rechazados que posteriormente se publican suelen recibir más citas que aquellos aceptados sin cambios, pues la revisión hace que sean de mayor calidad.
