For a given manuscript, how much patience do you have for getting it into the right journal?
Whether it be IF that you seek, or the cachet of a specific journal in your field, how many tries before you are willing to submit it to a sure-thing, aka, dump journal?
There were some Tweeps the other day that mentioned 7 tries. Now I don't know if this included resubmits and ultimate rejections or 7 different journals. but dayyum, people. 7?
I'm good for maybe 2 tries before I just dump it someplace I have high confidence will take it.
Perhaps I need a little more patience and/or fortitude?
