Finding a journal that is a good fit for your paper gives you the best chance of success when submitting for publishing.
Journal selector tools provide one method of compiling a preliminary list of potential journals by matching your output to journals that may be suitable.
There are a number of other journal selectors, including the Springer Journal Suggester, the Edanz Journal Selector, Wiley Find Journals, the IEEE Publication Recommender and the Open Journal Matcher.

Acceptance rates may also be able to be calculated. For example MLA international bibliography includes journals in literature, linguistics, and folklore indexed by the MLA Bibliography. Acceptance data is available in the MLA "Directory of Periodicals," found in the search menu in the database. This data shows the annual number of articles submitted and published, and these numbers can be used to calculate the acceptance rate.
For example, regarding the journal Hemingway Review, the MLA Directory states “Articles: Suggested Length: 6,250 words maximum; Number Submitted Per Year: 50-60; Published Per Year: 10-14.” Dividing the number of articles published by the number submitted yields an acceptance rate ranging from 17% (10/60) to 28% (14/50).
