Comprehensive Report on Article Acceptance Statistics for CCSE Journals

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 and auto insurance community. For specific journal data, see each journal's website.

The CCSE Announces its Latest Publishing Statistics

The Canadian Center of Science and Education (CCSE) is proud to announce that it published 4139 articles in 43 open-access journals during 2012. These articles reflect a diverse range of topics including biology, medicine, sciences, engineering, economics, business management, education, linguistics, psychology, social sciences, and humanities. Of the total number of published articles, only ten were retracted. The CCSE has been one of the largest open-access publishers in the world. 

These statistics are based upon the print versions of the journals. To see the breakdown of articles according to the journals in which they were published, please see the file entitled Statistics 2012

Explanation for Statistics Report

After reporting the statistics for 2012 Q4, we received many inquiries about them. A typical question asked was regarding the discrepancy between the number of articles received and the total of those accepted and rejected, which do not always match in some of the journals’ reports. 

To alleviate this confusion, please note that all statistics are based on the time frame of a quarter year, or three months. During each quarter, we calculate the articles received, accepted and rejected in this term. For example, some articles were submitted in 2012 Q4, but the decisions to accept or reject them were made in 2013 Q1. Likewise, some articles were submitted in 2012 Q3, but the decisions to accept or reject were made in 2012 Q4. This is why the statistics for articles received do not always match with the total number of those accepted and rejected during a particular quarter. 


The statistics reports are intended to describe the general status of acceptance and do not aim to reflect an accurate acceptance rate.
