Acceptance Rate

The acceptance rate for an academic journal is dependent upon the relative demand for publishing in a particular journal, the peer review processes in place, the mix of invited and unsolicited submissions, and time to publication, among others. As such, it may be a proxy for perceived prestige and demand as compared to availability. However, locating acceptance rates for individual journals or for specific disciplines can be difficult, yet is necessary information for promotion and tenure activities. Journals with lower article acceptance rates are frequently considered to be more prestigious and more “meritorious”. As an internal benchmark, most journals will not publish their acceptance rates on their website. From their perspective, a consistently low acceptance rate may prove to be a deterrent to future submissions. Moreover, the method of calculating acceptance rates varies among journals. Some journals use all manuscripts received as a base for computing this rate. Other journals allow the editor to choose which papers are sent to reviewers and calculate the acceptance rate on those that are reviewed that is less than the total manuscripts received. Also, many editors do not maintain accurate records on this data and provide only a rough estimate.

Journal of Pineal Research | Academic Accelerator - About the Journal


Journal of Pineal Research is a forum for the original scientific results of basic, applied, and clinical research involving any aspect of the pineal gland or its hormonal products in all vertebrate species. The journal also fully considers the biological functions and activities of melatonin in non-vertebrate species, plants and microorganisms. Essential criteria for publication are scientific importance, novelty, and timeliness, as well as clarity of presentation. Experimental data that are contrary to currently accepted thinking or divergent from actual dogma will be considered, provided the findings are based on solid, new experimental observations. All submitted papers must be complete in themselves. Case reports will be considered if the findings contribute significantly to an understanding of some aspect of the pineal gland and melatonin research. It is the expressed aim of the journal to serve pineal gland and melatonin researchers in all disciplines. Journal of Pineal Research is a peer-reviewed scientific journal covering research on the pineal gland and its hormonal products, chiefly melatonin, in all vertebrate species. Experimental studies on circadian rhythms and sleep are also published by the journal. It is published by John Wiley & Sons and the editor-in-chief is Gianluca Tosini. According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2018 impact factor of 15.2, ranking it 3rd out of 81 journals in the category Physiology, 5th out of 145 journals in the category Endocrinology & Metabolism, and 6th out of 267 journals in the category Neurosciences.
