Duotrope's State of the Stats (Past Three Years)

We are strong believers in transparency. That's why we provide so many statistics on publishers. We're also willing to shine that light on ourselves. Our State of the Stats provides the number of submissions reported, new listings added, contacts received, and listing updates over the past several years.
