There is one more thing to add. Many people say that the articles rejected by Nature Communications can be published in professional top journals, so Nature Communications is better than professional top journals. This logic cannot be established and it can be said with certainty that it is wrong. The operating mode of Nature Publishing Group is to ensure the impact factor. If what you do is not popular and lacking in the potential of citation, Nature Communications will rarely accept it even it is very novel. However, many professional top journals are relatively disciplined, such as PLoS Pathogens in virus. Although the impact factor of PLoS Pathogens is low, the quality of articles is much higher than that of Nature Communications. Because Nature Communications will give priority to the publication of viruses with high attention. Our next-door laboratory has published more than 7 or 8 valueless articles in Nature Communications in recent years. Each doctor graduated with 2 or 3 articles published on Nature Communications, but what they do were really valueless. The articles submitted by them to PLoS Pathogens were rarely sent for review by the editor. In addition, the citations of Nature Communications are mainly from two majors of materials science and new energy. It is easy to keep the impact factor.

We had two papers recently accepted by NC; very happy. It is definitely nonsense to say that NC accepts mediocre papers. Our first article has some very novel idea, so everyone is very interested. We tried Cell, Neuron, and Nature Neuroscience over six years, and they all sent the paper to external review  but eventually rejected it. We then sent to NC, and it was rejected again. Reviewers of all these journals suggested some particularly difficult experiments. First ee didn't want to do these experiments, but after the rejection by NC, we decided to perform the experiments. Took another year and a half, and after we appealed to the journal it was sent out for review again. The paper had  a total of 5 reviewers through the whole process, and it was finally accepted. The other paper is also on something very novel. NC initially had three reviewers. After two years of repeated reviews and revisions, two reviewers were satisfied, but the third one would not accept the paper.We appealed to the editor and gave our rationales, so the editor found two more reviewers, who asked a lot of questions. After we added new experiments accordingly, the paper was finally accepted it. These two both challenged traditional views in the field, and because the ideas are so new, it is not difficult for journals to send them for external review, but the reviewers are always strict and ask a lot of questions. The questions raised by NC's reviewers are very relevant to our study and useful, showing that they are truly experts in the field. I feel that NC's editor is fair relative to the editors of the other journals and NC does not discriminate against Chinese people. I want to say it again: whoever says that NC is a mediocre journal, I totally don’t agree.

Objectively speaking, NC is a very good comprehensive journal, NC nerveThe average quality of articles in science is definitely lower than the top journals of Nature Neuroscience and Neuron, but it is definitely higher than the quality of PNAS, elife, journal of neuroscience.I have to admire the operation level of the nature group, and have intercepted many manuscripts of old-fashioned journals by publishing different levels of journals.The cost of the 5000 knife is not low, probably twice that of Neuron and NN.But the group that can send this journal will care about these small money?Take a step back and say that even if there is no money, the group should send it if it has the opportunity to pay for it.

Nature Communications is a comprehensive journal with a small volume of 4,500 articles per year.While Scientific Reports publishes 25,000 articles per year, from this perspective, Nature Communications will never fall.If Scientific reports also take a small path, it will scare some people from the impact factor.Therefore, the journals have different routes, no comparability, and no comparison.
