Received a rejection letter? Don’t take it to heart as this is not always what it seems
No one likes getting rejection letters. Sadly, however, these are a fact of academic life; papers sent out to journals and grant applications are more likely to be rejected than accepted (or funded), especially if you are doing what you should be doing and aiming high with initial manuscript submissions (trying to get your work published in the best possible journals).
