The publishing delay in scholarly peer-reviewed journals

Bo-Christer Björk and David Solomon

Journal of Informetrics, 2013, vol. 7, issue 4, 914-923

Abstract: Publishing in scholarly peer reviewed journals usually entails long delays from submission to publication. In part this is due to the length of the peer review process and in part because of the dominating tradition of publication in issues, earlier a necessity of paper-based publishing, which creates backlogs of manuscripts waiting in line. The delays slow the dissemination of scholarship and can provide a significant burden on the academic careers of authors.
