Update April 2011: This survey is from many years ago, and wasn't intended to be a random or representative sample. I basically wanted to know what my friends collectively thought about various journals. If you want a larger and more recent (and no more unrepresentative) survey of journal reputations such a survey is available here.

Here are the results from the survey of 175 readers on the quality of various journals. The demographic data on the survey participants is here.
