At SLOAP Journals, we know the importance of your research being published as quickly and efficiently as possible. With the Online Submission system, we can guarantee a streamlined production process to ensure that your paper can reach the academic community rapidly and with maximum impact.The elapsed time from submission to publication for the articles averages 2-3 months. A decision of acceptance of a manuscript is reached in 1 to 2 months (average 10 weeks).
As for acceptance rate, the rate can be misleading, especially if one considers the number of pages allocated to a specific issue or even the journal's affiliation. For example, if a particular issue of the journal has been restricted to 100 pages, rather than 200, several worthy articles would have had to go unpublished, and the acceptance rate for the issue would have been reduced to as low as 25%.Given the increasing number of articles recommended for publication through SLOAP 's double-blind peer review process as well as the journal's goal is to bring the highest quality research to the widest possible audience, we consider it appropriate to expand the length of our special issues and enhance our mission by publishing all articles recommended on their merit. Some issues, on the other hand, may have up to 10 papers in a single issue, thereby again altering the acceptance rate.SLOAP is 100% self-supported, so there is no need or pressure to pre-allocate any of the journal's space to subscribers, sponsors, or corporate owners. For instance, if an affiliated journal has a reported acceptance rate of 40% but pre-allocates half of the space to its members, the acceptance rate is actually 80% to members and only 20% or lower to outsiders. Therefore, so as to speak, SLOAP acceptance rate averaged about 60% in the last 2 months.Which also means, on an average, SLOAP Journals have a 40% rejection rate of its submitted manuscripts, many of the papers fail on account of their substandard presentation and language (frustrating the peer reviewers).
