On Journal Information Pages

The journal information pages here and here include a column on journal rejection rates. When I first gathered the data, I included a strong caution about the accuracy of the rejection rate information here.

Since then, it appears some tenure committees have been taking the tables as gospel truth, to the detriment of some candidates. I believe that’s not a good enough reason to eliminate the information, since it is useful to younger scholars especially to have the information available. To counteract the negative consequences, however, I want to make known that I update the rejection rate numbers when contacted by the editors of the journals with more accurate information. So if you are an editor or know one, it would be useful to let me know when more accurate information is available.
