Based on reliable data (if there is any), how likely is a R&R be finally accepted approximately?
Here is some numbers I found:
According to an anonymous comment, the post RR acceptance rate for a "top journal" is about 25%.
According to an anonymous "editor", P(Acceptance|R&R and ranked below top 40 journal) is about 75%
One anonymous comment claims that the post RR acceptance rate of JFE is 85%, possibly based on the EJMR self-reported statistics on journal submissions.
A few comments claim that all of their RR are accepted, except once or twice.
A comment from the same link claims that the post RR acceptance rate is 75% but for top 5 is about 50%
A comment from the same link claims that the post RR acceptance rate is 90% but for top 5 is guessed to be 75%.
All of my friends and professors says that R&R lead to acceptance with high probability unless it is top-5 journals.
According to JoF editorial reports, the post RR acceptance rate is 58.8 in 2009, 45.9% in 2010, and 90% in 2019. This is a very reliable data for Finance. I am looking for similar data in one of the economics journals.
