I recently posted my two-page paper to arxiv and sent it to the editor of a good journal. The editor responded:
"Your result is not substantial enough" and so it was rejected."
I cannot say that I totally disagree with the editor, the paper does not make any significant progress on number theory but I can't say that my paper is totally without value. It is the first time I have tried to publish a paper, and I am confused:
- Was my paper rejected because it is too short?
- Should I submit it to another journal?
I would really appreciate if someone gave me some advice on how to proceed.
