A blog this week provides a useful tool for examining “real-world” publication and acceptance times for more than 3,000 journals. The author of the blog initiated the research based on the delays he was experiencing with the publication of his own article and felt compelled to investigate if the same issues were commonplace with other journals. The author focuses the article on PLOS, but provides a tool for examining the publication and acceptance times for many other journals over the past year.
This tool is likely to be of interest to authors, medical writers, publication planners and other professionals involved in the development of medical publications.
