MetaPaper: Lessons learned from 1K research paper rejections
by Christos Faloutsos


What do we need to do to polish the write-up of our research papers? Papers that are otherwise worth publishing, often get rejected due to presentation pitfalls. After about 1,000 rejections over the past 30+ years, some patterns started to emerge. In this talk, we discuss the three most important of these patterns, their potential remedies, as well as a list of an additional dozen of patterns and remedies.

Intended audience

This talk is mainly focusing on researchers in Data Mining, Databases, Machine Learning, Data Science. However, some of these 'lessons' may be useful to researchers in the broader Computer Science field.
