University academics have teaching and research responsibilities and are expected to contribute to the corpus of knowledge. The respect and recognition they receive from the public are contingent upon their intellectual contributions. However, there are academics who do not put much effort into research and writing, or they produce written works of subpar standards. They may have impressive educational qualifications or research degrees but are often encumbered by insufficient diligence (if not insufficient talent) in academic activities. Such scholars lack competitive edge and do not fare well in publishing in top-tier journals. In this essay, I reflect on my editorial experience and discuss the discrepancy between the standing of a section of university academics and the quality of writing they produce.
