Accelerated Publication option

If speed is crucial in your publishing strategy, our Accelerated Publication options are here to assist. These options are applicable to a limited number of articles and can facilitate faster publication of your research. It's important to note that opting for accelerated peer review does not mean compromising the quality of the review process. We ensure that the same high standards of review are maintained.

By choosing Accelerated Publication, you can achieve the following benefits:

Align your publishing timeline with conferences, new methodologies/processes to communicate

Maintain a competitive advantage by swiftly bringing your discoveries to the market.

Expedite the peer review process without compromising on the quality or rigor of the review.

Publication time: 90 days from submission to online publication.

These timelines rely on authors making revisions and returning required paperwork on schedule. We can meet the tight turnaround times by putting additional resources into monitoring and administering peer review and production processes.

To meet such requests without compromising the peer review quality, editorial staff employ additional efforts.


Extra efforts encompass the following measures:


-Making international phone calls or using messaging platforms like WhatsApp to communicate with potential reviewers and assess their availability for fast-track peer review.

-Typically, the number of potential reviewers contacted for accelerated peer review is 2-5 times higher than that for standard peer review.

-Conducting close monitoring of selected reviewers to ensure adherence to deadlines.

In regular peer review, a final decision is made by at least one editor. However, in the case of accelerated peer review, the final decision is typically made by two editors. If necessary, these two editors can seek assistance from a third editor. Consequently, it can be concluded that more checks are in place for accelerated peer review compared to standard peer review in order to maintain a high standard of peer review.
