How long does it take to become "in peer review" after submission?

Overall, the review process was fast. It is likely that the article lacked sufficient innovative ideas, so it was difficult to find reviewers. It went through multiple rounds of peer review, but as long as the outcome was positive, it was acceptable. Even if the journal's impact factor is low, it still counts as a publication in a reputable scientific journal.

I am too. I submitted it on June 28th and it went through peer review once. Now, it has been with the editor for a while and I don't know what is happening.

May I ask if your side has been "with editor" from 6.22-7.5? I submitted mine on 6.21 and haven't received any updates yet, although it did show "in peer review" twice during that time.

李毛毛 2021-07-09

I am paying online, it only takes 2 minutes to complete.

It should be the editor looking for an external review expert. Sometimes, if the expert does not want to review the manuscript, they have to find someone else and wait again.

It has been a month and it is still under external review, not as fast as others have said.

How do I make payment? I still don't understand the payment methods.

悟空爵爵 2021-07-02

May I ask how you made the payment? I chose to pay with an invoice and received an email similar to a receipt. I'm not sure what to do next. How did you make the payment?

悟空爵爵 2021-07-02

The review period is two weeks, with two reviewers. One major revision and one minor revision were suggested. The editor requested a major revision, and after the revision is completed within half a month, it will be accepted directly. One week after acceptance, it will be published.

The speed is fast, and the payment is convenient.

It has been a month and I am still reviewing.

The first SCI paper went through a total of four rejections before finally being accepted. I am grateful to the editor for their highly efficient handling of the process.

忆一怡 2021-06-23

Hello, may I ask if you also resubmitted your manuscript after revisions?

淘粉吧保洁工 2021-06-16

There have been no initial opinions since the submission on 4.29.
The peer review and editor have changed about ten times in the past two months.
Maybe they couldn't find a reviewer.

Does the publication fee for research papers amount to 750 pounds?

This journal is really fast. Even a low-quality SCI is still SCI.
Best wishes to everyone.

After submitting an article to RSC, STAYUS has become "Reject & Resubmit". The three reviewers rejected the manuscript, one with major revisions suggested, and another with minor revisions. The editor's suggestion was to reject the manuscript but allow for resubmission. If you choose to resubmit your manuscript, please include a detailed response addressing each of the reviewers' comments and highlight the changes you have made. Does this mean it requires major revisions?

750 pounds, more than 7,000 Chinese yuan. Whether you can apply for a discount depends on whether your team is listed on the official website as eligible for discount. Generally, if it is not listed, you cannot apply for a discount.

Overall, I can only say the process was fast, but it depends on luck with the reviewers. Thankfully, the reviewer's temperament was good, and there were a few questions I insisted on not changing, and I was passed after the third review.

After 2 weeks of submission, the reviewer provided feedback promptly. The reviewer's feedback consisted of major revisions and minor revisions. Due to the winter break, an extension of time was requested for the major revisions. After resubmission, the reviewer provided feedback for the minor revisions after 3 weeks. The results were obtained quickly after the minor revisions were made.

Jassy 2021-04-30

A reply will be received in just 2 weeks.

How many days does it usually take for peer review?

AlCu2764 2021-04-21

3.12 Submit

4.13 Resubmit

4.16 Resubmit
4.19 Accept

The paper I submitted to Energy & Fuels was thoroughly criticized by four reviewers.

After making revisions, I submitted it to RSC Advances (which is said to be faster...).

Indeed, RSC Advances lives up to its reputation for efficiency...

The first review took two weeks, with two reviewers suggesting major and minor revisions.

After making the revisions, I received minor revisions within two days of the second review, and accepted two days after resubmission~~
(During this time, I was busy with coursework for two weeks and received a reminder. My first-year struggles were exposed hhh)

The editor is super nice and extremely efficient. The speed of the review was even faster than my speed of revising the paper ~O(∩_∩)O~

By the way, the editor doesn't work on weekends, so if you submit on Friday, it will usually be processed by the following Monday.
