# Duplicate Issue

I'm not sure why this question was closed as a duplicate.

The closed question seems more general, and about best practices for having ciphers reviewed while the "duplicated" question is more focused on publication.

I might be picking nits though, and the linked question's answers could potentially be seen as opinion based.

Thoughts?

First thought: in case you're unaware of it, you can always vote to reopen if you think that makes sense and if you have the according reputation. This works like close-voting, just the other way around. And if you happen to lack the reputation, you can leave a comment so other users can become aware of potential objections and maybe also flag for moderator attention too so we get a heads-up and one of us can take a look at things.
