And those that failed….

Following on from Learning to love Rejection and Ben Baumberg here is the list of rejections, including those that found life elsewhere, those still looking to see the light of day and those that were left behind on the “battlefield”:

‘An Opportunity Lost? Exploring the benefits of the Child Trust Fund on youth transitions into adulthood’ – rejected by Youth & Society

“I’ve got a nice support group”: exploring the claimed benefits of time banking and social capital – rejected by Health & Social Care in the Community

There is a joint paper with a colleague who does not display the rejected so I don’t think it would be fair to name that one, it was for Social Policy & Administration.
