What is it about?
This editorial discusses the issues editors must consider when they decide which articles to accept for publication and why it can be a balancing act between ensuring quality and also ensuring diversity. It considers the increasing burden to "test" each submission on the assumption that authors cannot be trusted and why this burden may lead editors to make "easier' decisions by discriminating against more challenging articles.
