Points of Interest

  • Submissions will be acknowledged via email upon receipt. We strive to make an editorial decision in under 90 days, but circumstances beyond our control occasionally dictate a longer cycle.
  • Each paper is typically reviewed by at least two reviewers and is also read by the action editor (either the Editor or an Associate Editor). Results of our decision, along with copies of the reviews, will be forwarded to the contact author as quickly as possible.
  • If authors are invited to prepare a revision for further consideration, our letters of invitation will outline the key issues to be resolved and an assessment of the likelihood of success.
  • Authors are normally given three to six months from the date of the invitation to prepare a revision. Our policy is to strive to make a final publication decision after one or two revisions (of course, further work may also be requested to resolve any remaining issues).
  • Papers accepted to the LOBEX Journal become part of the OnlineFirst system, which provides immediate access to finalized manuscripts prior to their physical printing. Relatively few articles can be printed in any given issue, so there is some time lag between online and in-print publication; nevertheless articles published OnlineFirst are published. OnlineFirst allows researchers and others in the field to read and cite the most current information available.
