Publishing is an essential component of scientific activity and an increasing number of well-known forces, but including also editors, press us to publish much. Recently, refinement of some of these forces coerces at least some of us to publish not merely in peer-reviewed journals but in those that are hardest to penetrate. My personal opinion that this is to the detriment of science does not help. Publishing well is difficult. Here I try to analyze part of the difficulty and to conclude partial remedies.
