When your manuscript arrives at the journal’s editorial office,
JDU distinguishes itself from other journals in terms of the speed of our review process. Normally, our desk review is performed within six weeks. All submitted papers to JDU are subject to critical double-blind peer review by our editors and/or by external experts in the field. If a paper is sent out for external review, reports from our referees are sent back to the author in four to five months. To facilitate this speedy review process, we demand that authors do not take more than four months to revise their paper. If more time is taken, JDU as a rule will consider the resubmitted manuscript a new submission, which implies that the review process is started all over. If applicable, a second review round generally only takes a month or two.
After the article has undergone full peer review and been accepted for publication, the acceptance paper will be published so it will be visible and open for citing. Since it has not been through the copyediting, typesetting, pagination and proofreading process may lead to differences between this version and the Version of Record. This final process generally takes about four months, after which the Version of Record is published in one of our issues.
