Rapid plans are available for a prompt publishing timeline.
1 - Review Plan ± Revision
2 - Editing Plan *
3 - Production Plan
Estimated Completion Dates (Starting from today)
If a standard plan is selected for review or production stages, the estimated publishing may be delayed beyond the expected dates.
Therefore, to ensure a prompt publishing process, we highly recommend opting for rapid plans for both review and production stages.
Even though the estimated date calculation assumes that the submission will be accepted, Choosing a Fast-Track Review Plan does not guarantee or increase the chances of acceptance of the article.
The time period for standard services, whether it be for review or production, is represented by median figures. It is important to note that these figures serve as an average, implying that certain articles may be processed in a shorter duration than indicated, while others may require a significantly longer time.
The time period for an author's revision should not be overlooked. It is the author's responsibility, and it depends on their response time.
* The necessity of an editing plan is contingent upon the level of language accuracy in the manuscript. It is highly likely that articles authored by non-native English speakers will require an editing plan.
