Are questions about journal statistics on topic here?
- what is the impact factor of journal x? (probably shouldn't need to ask it here as this info is widely available)
- what is the average review time for journal x?
- what are the average times from submission to acceptance/publication for journal x?
- what are the current (2015) rankings for journals in the field of x? (such info can be found for older rankings, but recent info is generaly behind a paywall... example of rankings)
Personally I think they could be on topic because they are objective (rather than subjective shopping questions) requests for information which is highly relevant to academics.
