Advice for potential authors

At JCA we are increasingly asked what our “rejection rate” is. There are all kinds of ways of working this out. Over the past year it was about 92%. In 2015, it looks like it will be higher as the submission rate has increased substantially.

In other words, getting published in JCA is harder than it ever was. In these circumstances, would-be authors need to ensure that their paper, when submitted is complete, well-written, carefully edited and fits the scope of the journal.

Routledge makes resources available for those wanting to publish in a top academic journal. Too many would-be authors ignore some basic points, making the video introduction at the publisher’s website valuable.
