Benchmarking against peer journals is essential for understanding the performance of your journals in the context of the wider environment in which they operate.
Some of the questions we can help you answer include:
- Is your society overly generous (or not competitive) in the compensation offered to editors?
- Are publishing turnaround times for your journals competitive?
- What is the growth trend with manuscript submissions in your cohort of journals?
- Do your journals desk-reject papers at a comparable level to peers?
