How to Publish More Papers

Based on a survey of journal editors, 21% of papers submitted for publication are rejected prior to review, 8% because the research is not within the scope of the journal and 13% because of poor manuscript quality. Another 30% are rejected after review, and 49% are eventually accepted. Based on an ongoing survey of published articles, however, the acceptance rate of manuscripts edited by SciTechEdit International is greater than 94%.
