Starting in October 2012 (Q4), all CCSE journals began reporting their statistics for articles received, accepted, and rejected on their journal webpages. CCSE has now compiled and calculated the results for the actions taken by all its published journals based on the quarter and year in which these articles were received (see sample below). For the purposes of this report, the first quarter (Q1) represents Jan.-Mar., the second quarter (Q2) is Apr.-Jun., the third quarter (Q3) is Jul.-Sept., and the fourth quarter (Q4) is Oct.-Dec. All actions, whether accepted or rejected, for articles that take place within each quarter shall be calculated and reported in the following format:
2012 Q3: Total Articles Received: 178; Accepted: 85; Rejected: 92
2012 Q2: Total Articles Received: 168; Accepted: 85; Rejected: 82
2012 Q1: Total Articles Received: 150; Accepted: 86; Rejected: 64
2011: Total Articles Received: 1150; Accepted: 550; Rejected: 600
2010: Total Articles Received: 1050; Accepted: 540; Rejected: 512
Please be advised that CCSE does not publish or report the acceptance/rejection rate to the general public. Although there are various formulas for calculating the acceptance/rejection rate, none is accepted widely by the academic community. For specific journal data, see each journal’s website.
