How do statisticians perceive statistics journals?

Since researchers and academic institutions are increasingly evaluated based on their publication record in peer reviewed journals, it is crucial to assess how the statistics community perceives statistics journals. This study presents four subjective quality metrics of statistics journals as expressed by different segments of statisticians. Based on a worldwide sample of 2,190 statisticians, our findings indicate that the research interest and geographic origin of the researcher have a significant impact on journal perceptions, which are highly correlated with a journal's total number of citations.
