All,



Many thanks to those who responded to my post about journal publication
times. As well as experiences of those submitting to journals, I received
several responses from editors which were very helpful. A couple of
suggestions about where to find this information were also made - I couldn't
find any information posted directly on journal websites, but several
journals include information at the top of the manuscript about the date
submitted and date accepted.



Michael Schwartz sent the following statistics for Gait & Posture:

Time from submission to "in press" status was 36 weeks

Time from submission to published (vol, pg numbers) was 81.7 weeks



I was also reminded that publication time includes time taken by reviewers
and typically also includes time taken by the authors in one or more
revisions.



Several people also commented that articles 'in press' are often treated as
'published' for the purposes of retention and tenure evaluations.



Here is a summary of the publication times I received, plus my own
experiences
