Steve and Greg,

What strikes me is that you are talking about pre-prints which in all
cases seem to be of high quality. But what about the articles which are
simply rejected?

I have heard that this could amount to 40% of the submitted articles in
some biology periodicals.

These periodicals are not in the upper level of the scale, therefore
articles are not rejected because there are a lot of other better
publications submitted. They are rejected because they are not of
sufficient quality to be published at all.

Will these pre-prints stay in an archive?
