Acceptance rates, time to publication & Journal Finder tools


Journal Finder tools provide crucial information around a journal’s performance, quality and editorial processes. Not all publishers provide this information. These tools apply text frequency or semantic search algorithms to match an article’s title, abstract and keywords to potential journals. Please remember your results will be limited to the publisher that has developed the tools. These tools provide information on time taken from submission to publication, acceptance rates, Open Access costs. 

  • JournalGuide: This tool is agnostic in that it looks for journals across most publishing houses. However, it may not give you the level of detail e.g. the acceptance rates, that you require.
  • Wiley (beta version – no acceptance rates as yet)
