We’re always aiming to reduce publication time for your research, aiming to offer you the fastest possible speed of publication, without compromising quality. Take a look at some of the publication speeds for some of the journals in the Materials Today family.
First Decision: Average speed from submission until the first editorial decision (accept, reject, revise).
Review Speed: Average speed from submission until final editorial acceptance, this includes 'First Decision'.
Production Speed: Average speed from editorial acceptance to the final manuscript citable online with a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). Assigning Volume, Issue and page information will take longer.
The numbers used were from January - October 2012, accepted manuscripts only.
