JAMA Internal Medicine —The Year in Review, 2016
Σάβατο, 04.01.2017, 03:00am
I would like to thank all of our 2016 reviewers, authors, and readers for another great year. I learn so much from all of you as well as from my super-smart, always hard-working, and fun team of editors. Thanks to the 24/7 work of the editors, with strong assistance from our reviewers, our turnaround time for peer review is 13 days, and time to first decision without review is a median of 2 days and 36 days with review. The journal received 2695 major manuscript submissions in 2016, of which 1984 were major research manuscripts (Table). The senior editors continue to do careful review up front so that we only request peer reviewers for articles that have already been carefully analyzed and have a better than 50/50 chance of being published. This ensures the best use of our reviewers’ time. Our overall acceptance rate is 14%, and the reject without review rate is 77%.
