Cycle Times

We know that it is of great importance to authors to get a timely response to their submission. Therefore, new submissions are subjected to an initial screening by a senior editor or the editor-in-chief to determine whether the manuscript's topic fits within the journal's scope and the manuscript meets Electronic Markets' high quality requirements in regard to rigor and relevance.

If the paper does not pass this initial screening, a first decision can usually be communicated within two weeks of submission. In case the manuscript passes the initial screening, the paper will enter into the review process. To assure high quality reviews that produce valuable comments for authors, the full review process may take up to three months from initially receiving the manuscript to the first editorial decision. The average time from submission to first decision is below 60 days.

The average time between submission and acceptance amounts to 38 weeks, depending on the number of revisions needed.
