Nobel prize winning paper rejections: a continuing series

[Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov's (2010 physics Nobel laureates)] first paper on graphene was published in Science in 2004, after being rejected by Nature. A second paper appeared in 2005. Since then, the Swedish Academy said, “research in this area has literally exploded,” producing a growing number of papers about the material, its properties and its promise.
