Guide to your Favorites & Ignore List (individual subscribers only)

A Note about Privacy: Your right to privacy is important to us. Read our Privacy Policy and contact us with any concerns.

Duotrope lists thousands of active markets. Not all of those will be for everyone—some you'll love and some you'll hate. We offer two lists for organizing the listings: your Favorites List and your Ignore List. At first glance, these two lists may appear not to offer much, but any effort you put into them will be rewarded.

Every active market listing has a "Favorite & Ignore" section in the sidebar beneath the cover art, where you can add a listing to (or remove it from) your Favorites List or Ignore List. Also, there's a star icon with a number to the immediate right of the listing's title, like this:  369. That number indicates the active users who have added the listing to their Favorites List. (We do not publish the number of Ignores because there are many different reasons why someone may choose to Ignore a market.)

Managing Your Ignore List

Are you sick of seeing certain markets appear in your search results? Are there places where you will never submit? The reasons are wide and varied: you may have had a bad experience with the editor, the market may offend your political or religious sensibilities, perhaps you're allergic to markets with "cat" in the title, etc. It doesn't matter why. Just add them to your Ignore List and they will never again appear in your search results.

Adding to Your Ignore List

From the market's listing, simply click the "Ignore this Listing" link in the sidebar below the cover art. This will take you to a short form where you can include a note about why you're ignoring them (optional and private). Don't forget to click the "Add" button. That's it!

Viewing Your Ignore List

Most of the time your Ignore List will simply do its job in the background, but occasionally you may want to check on it. Perhaps one or two listings might need to be removed from the list.

Removing Markets from Your Ignore List

If you're on the market's listing, simply click the "Remove from Ignore List" link. If you're on your Ignore List page, click on the "Update" link for the row in question. Then click the "Remove" button. All done!

Managing Your Favorites

We all have favorites. With Duotrope, you can gather them all in one place like a box of small treasures. We each have our own criteria for choosing our Favorites: perhaps you're building a list of your dream publications, or curating a collection of the nicest editors, or simply collecting publications that you like. Create a list that will inspire you.

Adding to your Favorites List

From the market's listing, simply click the "Favorite this Listing" link in the sidebar below the cover art. This will take you to a short form where you can include a brief note (optional and private). Don't forget to click the "Add" button. That's it!

Viewing your Favorites List

You can check in on your Favorites any time by going to your Favorites List.

Searching your Favorites List

Have you ever wished you could run a detailed search on just your Favorites? You can! On the main search page, go to the Exclusions tab and check the "Non-Favorites" box. Enter other search criteria as desired. Only your Favorites that match all the criteria will be returned as search results.

Removing Markets from your Favorites List

From time to time, you may want to cull your Favorites list—perhaps they're now CLOSED or DEFUNCT or perhaps you have another reason for downgrading them. If you're on the market's listing, simply click the "Remove from Favorites" link. If you're on your Favorites List, click on the "Update" link for the row in question. Then click the "Remove" button. All set!


We hope this information has helped you understand how and why to take advantage of your Favorites List and Ignore List. If you have any suggestions on how we can improve this guide, please let us know.
