AOE: anywhere on earth.

Within each month, on:

  • day 0 - submission deadline
  • days 1 to 4 - action editor assignment
  • days 5 to 7 - desk rejects and reviewer assignment
  • day 7 to 1 month - reviewing
  • 1 month to 1 month + 5 days - meta reviewing
  • 1 month + 6 days - reviews to authors

Note that this is a new initiative, so we may revise the timelines as we get more experience. In the case that all reviews and meta-reviews are completed on time, reviews will be released on the 21st of the month following the submission. In the case that not all reviews are completed on time, the release of reviews may be later than this date.

Any paper that is not desk rejected will receive reviews. Once authors have reviews they may:

  • revise and resubmit for another round of reviews (typically papers will go back to the same action editor and reviewers)
  • submit their paper and reviews to a publication venue
