Can I serve this dish half‐baked? Approaches to publishing some less than perfect research
RINAH is always seeking reports of the main results of major research projects, but many manuscripts we receive are not exactly in this category. Many are ancillary analyses or secondary analyses from larger studies. Some are novice works that are not quite polished. Others are reports of projects that failed to produce the expected findings. Some of these manuscripts have potential for publication after some rewriting or transformation, and others do not. When evaluating an imperfect submission, a chef‐editor has several factors in mind that a would‐be author can learn from.
