Question on a policy statement

  1. Apr 17, 2015 #1
    " Our policy is that we reserve the right to reject any submission. "

    Of course this is a policy statement. Some people may have read it or the like somewhere.

    Is there anything wrong with it?

    What are you talking about? Who is writing/publishing it? Who is the audience? What's it for?

    It's pretty hard to have a proper discussion without context but on the face of it I'd say there's nothing wrong with that statement in of itself. If you're a privately owned website, newspaper or even scientific journal you have the right to choose what submissions to accept. Areas where it becomes murkier would be if the reason for accepting/rejecting something falls afoul of anti-discrimination laws e.g. If a newspaper rejected opinion pieces from any black person.
