The reviewers who didn't like that this paper was 26 pages and said nobody would read it at that length would really hate my highly cited 54 page article.
@drb: If it is a well-written paper, I'll read it no matter how long! Especially if it explains things to me that I didn't know before (e.g. if it's in a field very different from mine). :) But, at the risk of being, well, me, citations don't mean people read things. :P Some #LHC papers have stupidly high citations and I doubt they're page-turners.
Will you have to do a lot of trimming?
@RaoOfPhysics Yea, totally agree about the notion that citations≠reads.
I don't think we'll have to trim a ton from it. The editor was rather apathetic about the whole issue so I think we'll try to cut some bits and make others less verbose.
I'd really rather not break it apart into separate papers because I think it's stronger when everything is together in one place.
@drb: All the best!
