An additional point to add to David's comment which I endorse. Sometimes putting a bunch of stuff together makes for more of an interesting view even when each of the parts put together doesn't change much to create the whole. While it may look obvious to me how many of my papers fit together to support a more complex overall view, it may not be that obvious to others.

Steven, I'm puzzled why it would be wrong to handle a backlog by upping standards. I can see that one shouldn't publish bad stuff just because you don't have anything better, so lowering standards too far to match accepted papers to slots would be bad. But I don't see what's wrong with adjusting your standards upwards to make the cut to fill the number of slots one has to fill. At least raising standards would (if we were always right about quality , which we're not) have the line between published and not published in a particular journal turn on the quality of submission rather than when the author got a paper ready to send out. What am I missing?
