Welcome to Not Relevant

This blog was born out of reading complaints from lots of people that their SIGIR paper was rejected.  Ok, we’ve all been there, most of it is probably sour grapes but surely there are some gems there (including yours, my friend!).

So your paper got rejected with three two-liner reviews and a metareview that reads (summary) “Zzz. uh wah?”  What can you do?  You have three traditional choices:

  1. Send it off to the next conference (with optional revisions)
  2. Send it off to a journal (with optional revisions)
  3. Cry in your beer

But now you have a fourth option.  Send it to Not Relevant.  Our crack team of experienced IR researchers will review your paper (probably for the second time) and attempt to guide it towards publication here.  Think of us as an online journal for papers that the conference just doesn’t seem to get.

We aren’t agreeing to publish everything we get.  We are trying to find the discarded diamonds, the wheat in the chaff.  Everyone knows that conference review processes are fallible, and we want to be the sieve that holds the great stuff that they missed.

The editorial board and reviewing criteria are in process.  Stay tuned, or contact us if you want to be involved.
