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 sponsors or
corporate owners.   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% or
lower to outsiders.   Aforesaid arrangement is seldom revealed.   AEQ acceptance-rate calculations are done via open, transparent
process, 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.
