Baer's Criterion of injectivity implies that injectivity of a module is a factorization property with respect to\ a single monomorphism. Using the notion of a cotorsion pair, we study generalizations and dualizations of factorization properties in dependence on the algebraic structure of the underlying ring and on additional set-theoretic hypotheses. For commutative noetherian of Krull dimension , we show that the assertion 'projectivity is a factorization property with respect to a single epimorphism' is independent of ZFC + GCH. We also show that if is any ring and there exists a strongly compact cardinal , then the category of all projective modules is -accessible.
