Cycle Times

Being aware that a timely response to their submission is of great importance to authors, all new submissions are subject to an initial desk reject screening by the Editorial Team (Editor-in-Chief and Co-Editors) to determine whether the manuscript's topic fits within the journal's scope and the manuscript meets the journal's quality requirements with 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 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.
