AJR & Rejection of Manuscripts
"Countries in which English is the primary language had higher acceptance rates than those in which English is not the primary language. Countries with English as the primary language, including Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia, had rejection patterns similar to that of the United States. Language problems were not a major reason for rejection, except for manuscripts from China. Lack of new or useful knowledge was by far the most common reason for rejection in all countries.

Language problems were not a major cause of rejection, except for manuscripts from China. "
