Research Impact: Journal, Article & Author
Locating acceptance/rejection rates for individual journals can be difficult. If the resources listed on the "Acceptance/Rejection Rates" tab do not provide the information, try the following:
- Check the “information for authors” area of the print journal or on the home page for the journal.
- Some societies publish acceptance/rejection rates for their journals on their home page.
- Contact the editor of the journal to see if s/he will share the acceptance/rejection rate. Use the resources listed on the "Directories" tab to locate contact information for your journal.
It may be possible to locate acceptance/rejection rates for journals within a particular discipline.
Try a Google search using this strategy: “acceptance rate" OR "rejection rate" AND your discipline
Example: "acceptance rate" OR "rejection rate" AND chemistry
Note: Use the quotation marks and capitalize OR and AND.
