- "mapping the blind alleys of science": papers containing negative results can warn others against futile directions;
- "reinventing the wheel": papers accidentally rederiving a known result may contain new insight or ideas;
- "squaring the circle": papers discovered to contain a serious technical flaw may nevertheless contain information or ideas of interest;
- "applications of cold fusion": papers based on a controversial premise may contain ideas applicable in more traditional settings;
- "misunderstood genius": other papers may simply have no natural home among existing journals.
Rejecta Mathematica publishes two types of papers: research articles and correspondences. The screening process for publishing research articles in Rejecta Mathematica includes no technical peer review (hence the slogan Caveat Emptor); rather, papers are selected on the basis of their potential interest to researchers in the mathematical sciences.
Rejecta Mathematica is published by Rejecta Publications, Inc., a non-profit corporation based in Texas. Rejecta Publications, Inc. is not affiliated with any university or other educational institution.
