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.
