I am often asked: 'which articles get published in JAN?' or 'what kind of articles are you looking for?' and I find both questions hard to answer. My honest answer to the first question is: 'those articles that survive the review process and are then accepted by the editors' and to the second question: 'those articles that will meet the criteria in the previous answer.' I think I know why people ask and it is not merely out of curiosity. They want to see if they can have a shortcut to getting published; if they only knew what got published…they'd write it!
