Below is an overview of the review process and estimated timeline at JEI, including the time manuscripts typically spend with authors during revisions. Dashed arrows indicate places where a manuscript may go back and forth between the Managing Editor and Author several times before proceeding to the next step. These times are all approximate and will vary depending on the number of manuscripts in our system at one time. During May through September we receive our highest number of submissions and there are usually delays of 2 weeks at each stage of the review process while we work to process all submissions.
Please wait to contact us about the status of your manuscript until at least one week after the time given on this timeline or in the most recent decision email you received from the journal - whichever is longer.
The Managing Editor in charge of your manuscript is the best person to e-mail. You can reach them by e-mailing [email protected].
