CABELL's recommended journals are those that have met Cabell's criteria for quality.
It can be very difficult to get an article published in a scholarly journal. For information on acceptance rates of journal articles of business, accounting,economics, education and psychology journals, please see Cabell's database (linked above.)
Some journals post their acceptance rates on their websites.
Other useful sites include:
Predatory journals or vanity presses typically charge hefty publication fees and advertise a quick turn around time. The peer-review and editing process may be low quality and the website may disappear without warning. You may want to proceed with caution if the journal you are publishing with has several of the following characteristics. It may still be a good journal, but you may want to look at the submission site carefully, review past issues, contact the editorial board, and talk with other scholars who have published in that journal.
