Waiting for publication

Waiting times. Intending authors should be aware that an accepted article does not immediately go to online publication.

Every article published undergoes a detailed editing by the Journal. This means that there is a delay between acceptance and online publication. There is then a further delay to hard-copy publication.

The current wait from acceptance to editing by the journal and online publication is about 6 months.

By the end of December 2019, all articles accepted up to the end of July 2019 were in the editing process or already published online. In addition, all papers accepted later in 2019 for special issues in 2020 had been edited.
