| Acceptance Rate Note: Some journals have a lower acceptance rate than
Academic Exchange Quarterly (AEQ).   However, such rate
can be misleading,
especially if one considers journal affiliation - independent vs corporate sponsorship.   AEQ is 100% self-supported,
independent, so there is no need or pressure to
pre-allocate any of the journal's space to members, authors connected to
For instance, if an affiliated journal with corporate sponsorship publicizes
article acceptance rate of 20% but
pre-allocates half of the space to its members,
the hidden acceptance rate could be 90% to associated members and only 10%
lower to outsiders.   Aforesaid arrangement is seldom revealed.
AEQ acceptance-rate calculations are done via open, transparent
WYSIWYG, and consists of four distinctive stages.
We use the same self-evident approach, WYSIWYG, in estimating
Academic Exchange Quarterly impact factor.
None-the-less, for those that insist to have the "impact factor" we suggest
Google Scholar Metrics because
the h5-index is simple to understand, hard to manipulate, and provides a reasonable
if crude measure of the respect accorded to a journal by scholars within its field.
While journal metrics are no guarantee of the quality of a journal, if they are going to be used
we should use the best available, and Google’s h5-index is a big improvement on the ISI impact factor.
