Heavy Lifting - thoughts and web finds by an economist

I reach out to the HL community with the following question. The following is an abstract of a working paper which is having a hard time getting past the editors at the journals to which we have submitted. We are not being rejected for being "wrong" but for being "different." This is not an unheard of experience, but one that is frustrating.
My question is what, if any, journal in which you might imagine such an abstract appearing. Hopefully not the Journal of Failed Research!! Any suggestions can be sent to depken-at-uta-dot-edu.
I think part of the issue is that PC has kind of a bad rap: less people understand it than 20 years ago, and those that do are leery of the somewhat arbitrary associating of a name with component.Post a Comment
You didn't say who has turned this down though, so it is hard to speculate about outlets.
My sense is that this would do better at a general interest journal that isn't afraid of a little econometrics: EEJ maybe.
You probably already asked Mark Wohar, but if not, do so. Carter Hill is another one who might have some ideas - he's done a lot with unusual techniques and fun data sets.
In my case, when I wanted to do something about sports that ended up sounding more like stats, I presented at the ASA Statistitcs In Sports Section and got in the proceedings. It is "just" a proceedings, but my deans and chairs have been willing to accept that a proceedings from that level is equivalent to a journal no one ever reads, so I do get some credit for it.
