Note: The impact score shown here is equivalent to the average number of times documents published in a journal/conference in the past two years have been cited in the current year (i.e., Cites / Doc. (2 years)). It is based on Scopus data and can be a little higher or different compared to the impact factor (IF) produced by Journal Citation Report.

Nature Communications started in the year 2010 and has been growing ever since. Nature Communications doesn’t have a fix publishing frequency. Their publishing frequency is continuous and upon acceptance. They have a very strict acceptance rate of 7.7%. They get over 50,000 submissions every year.
The acceptance rate/percentage of any academic journal/conference depends upon many parameters. Some of the critical parameters are listed below.
It is essential to understand that the acceptance rate/rejection rate of papers varies among journals. Some Journals considers all the manuscripts submissions as a basis of acceptance rate computation. On the other hand, few consider the only manuscripts sent for peer review or few even not bother about the accurate maintenance of total submissions. Hence, it can provide a rough estimation only.
The best way to find out the acceptance rate is to reach out to the associated editor or to check the official website of the Journal/Conference.
