Preamble

While it is implicit in the scientonomic workflow, that paper submissions are evaluated for pursuitworthiness rather than acceptability, this is yet to be stated and accepted explicitly. As seen in the case of the traditional workflow, when the goals of the peer review process are not clearly articulated, some reviewers review for pursuitworthiness, others review for acceptance, yet other review for both. As a result it is often unclear how the content of a published article should be understood - as accepted by the community or as merely pursued. Thus, to avoid confusion, it is important to state explicitly what the goals of the peer review process are in the scientonomic workflow.
