Editorial Evaluation Timeline
We read and evaluate every submission, and we try our best to get back to you quickly. We are mindful of how long it can take to publish a paper, so we work with authors and reviewers to minimise that time. Here’s how long each step in the process usually takes:
- Initial decision to review: 3–5 days after submission
- Decision after review: 3–4 weeks after submission
- Anticipated timeframe for suggested revisions: 2–3 months (with flexibility if needed)
- Time to publication: Within 3-5 months of acceptance.
