Faculty Survey: Decision on Where to Publish

When looking for a place to publish, you consider the journal's reputation most important, followed by its publisher; you'd like the publishing process to be fairly quick and easy. Retaining copyright is at least somewhat important for over half of you, but about one-quarter are neutral on the subject. See the bar charts for details.
