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 article acceptance to editing by the journal and online publication is about 9-10 months.

The waiting time is extending due to the virus-induced influx of papers to the journal. More papers have been accepted, with December 2020 having been an exceptional month, with 9 papers accepted.

By the end of December 2020, all articles accepted up to 7 May 2020 were in the editing process or published online.
