Journal "Physics Letters A" does not have referees of principle. None
is willing to review my paper "Defects of the general field theory"
because I show that the canonical energy-momentum and spin tensors are
wrong, and physicists fail to correct this tensors by the
Belinfante-Rosenfeld procedure. This foolish procedure eliminates spin
and does not give the true (Maxwell) energy-momentum tensor. And I show
how to obtain a true spin tensor.

Allan P Fordy, Editor of Physics Letters A, wrote me on July 12, 2006:
"Dear Dr Khrapko, I have tried many referees, but none is willing to
read your paper. I think it would be better for you to try a
"Foundations" journal, rather than PLA (or the "Foundations editor" of
PLA, who is P.R. Holland).
I must, therefore, REJECT. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to
consider your work."

Unfortunately, I cannot hope for Dr. Holland's understanding. I sent a
message to AuthorSupport@elsevier.com on May 1, 2006:

"Subject: Submission to PLA
Dear Global Author Support Department,
Prof. P.R. Holland, Editor of Physics Letters A, is a puzzle for me.

I submitted a paper "The Beth experiment is under review" to PLA on
November 17, 2005. In this paper I show that the electrodynamics cannot
explain the result of the Beth experiment, and I solve the problem. But
Prof. Holland simply wrote me, "Your paper is not suitable for
publication in Physics Letters A" on November 18, 2005.

I submitted a paper "Professor Soper's mistake" on November 13, 2005.
In this paper I show the Professor Soper's mistake confirms that the
Belinfante-Rosenfeld procedure is not fit for obtaining true
energy-momentum and spin tensors of electrodynamics, and I solve the
problem. Unfortunately, Prof. Holland simply wrote me, "I have read
your paper with interest but regret that it is not suitable for
publication in Physics Letters A"

I submitted a paper "Exercises in the CANONICAL spin tensor" on October
6, 2005. But Prof. Holland rejected it without reading on October 11,
2005. His senseless reply was: "This paper is devoted to a examination
of the virtues of a spin tensor introduced by the author".

Now I intend to submit a paper "Defects of the general field theory" to
PLA. I would be grateful if this paper enters the peer-review process.
Can I hope?
Sincerely, Radi Khrapko, Professor of Physics, Moscow Aviation
Institute
P. S. These papers are published at www.sciprint.org and
www.mai.ru/projects/mai_works."

But I have no answer till now.

I received an answer from Allan P Fordy, Editor of PLA. He reject my
paper "Defects of the general field theory" though his reviewers didn't
dare give a negative conclusion.
He advise me to send my paper to one of the journals which specialise
in "Foundations", for example, Springer publish "Foundations of
Physics".
Unfortunately this journal is not suitable because his Editor, Prof.
Alwyn van der Merwe, is not able to review papers. I submitted papers
to this journal six times:
"Violaton of the gauge equivalence" on May 28, 2001,
"Radiation of spin from a rotator" on May 3, 2002,
"Inner incompleteness of the Maxwell electrodynamics" on August 7,
2002,
"Classical electrodynamics' spin" on October 23, 2002,
"The Belinfante procedure fails to symmetrize and energy-momentum
tensor" on March 12, 2003,
"The Beth experiment is under review" on 17 Apr 2003,
A typical rejection was:
"Paper is, relatively speaking (i.e., considering the restraints
imposed by our fixed annual page budget), not of sufficient interest
and/or substantive enough for the purposes of our journal. In practical
terms, it (they) is (are) unlikely to survive our strict reviewing
process; my editorial guidelines require at least two favorable reports
for publication of any submitted paper; three or more for controversial
papers. Your manuscript is accordingly.
I thank you for your interest in FOUNDATIONS OF PHYSICS (LETTERS) and
wish you every success in finding a suitable alternative forum for the
public discussion of your thoughtful ideas.
Cordially yours, Alwyn van der Merwe"

Now I ask, dear Professor Fordy, do you know how to force the
scientific community to recognize the classical electrodynamics spin,
or you think the community will always support today's falsehood?
Maybe you know another journal which I must try.
