Frequently asked questions.
How long does it take to publish my article?

There are many variables that play a role in the time it takes for an article to be published. However, typically, for an original research article, a desk review for appropriateness and fit of the submission is done within 3 days. Then we aim to assign and review the article and provide you feedback with guidance between 4 to 8 weeks. Every review for a revision may take up to 4 weeks. The amount of time it takes the author to revise depends on the author(s). Once all revisions are done and the article is accepted, then it is expected to be published within a week.This process would be much shorter for other types of articles such as opinion paper, position paper, etc...

What are the steps for paper processing?

All submissions (done through the INDIRE Information Systems - IIS) go through a double blind review process, regardless of their type.
