What is the timing of your review process/what happens after I submit an article?

Submissions to PXJ are accepted on an ongoing basis and should follow the requested submission types and adhere to author guidelines. PXJ typically publishes twice annually in April and November and submissions are considered for an issue once deemed ready for publication, not directly based on date of submission. We encourage and welcome your submissions.

Submitting authors will be notified of the initial editorial decision to send their submission to review within 30 days of the receipt of a completed submission. All submissions follow a full double-blind review process. Submissions that are selected to go to review typically receive notification of initial publication decisions within 120 days, though timing may vary due to reviewer response. We are committed to actively keeping authors appraised of the status of your submission. You can begin the submission process here.
