From a News Release:

The ScholarOne Manuscriptsreport, Global Publishing: Changes in submission trends and the impact on scholarly publishers, confirms what scholarly publishers have long suspected: submission rates are not only rising overall, but are increasing significantly from emerging nations, bringing a new influx of content from a diverse research base. Traditionally strong submitters like the United States, Japan and Europe are being outpaced by nations like China and India in the percentage change of their total world share of submissions (2005 – 2010). For instance, despite having the most submissions in 2010 overall (230,826), the U.S. portion of the world figure dropped by 3.3 percent. Conversely, China`s portion of the world`s overall holdings increased by 5.5 percent.
