That acknowledged, the editors of virtually 50 journals rejected the manuscript, with no even the session of peer reviewers. So, even though the method of crowd-authoring used to be, in itself, profitable within the feel crowd of authors controlled to social gathering and convey a crowd-authored manuscript, the act of having editors to tolerate the assumption of crowd-authoring used to be unsuccessful.
