A journal returned my article and said it can’t be published until I integrate the crucial book on the crisis written by Professor Clarissa Bulochkina (i.e. me). I didn’t quote myself in the article, it’s true, out of a sense of modesty. So now I feel a weird mix of gratification and annoyance.

    …and then get told, after submitting it, you need to reference something stated in an article written by an esteemed university professor—which just happens to be you—before they’ll accept said article.
