  1. I had about a five-month waiting period from submission to acceptance (December-May). This might mean that they review their submissions once the Academic Year is over.

    The comments I received were positive and demonstrated an attention to detail. I would recommend sending submissions there as long as you can stand the wait (a wait which is standard for most journals).

  2. The staff and editor were very professional and helpful. I had a decision regarding publication in 5 months (not counting dead time over the Christmas holiday). This is a quick decision based on my experience with other journals and what I read on the MLA dababase. I was anxious to know about the decision and contacted the editor. I explained that I had an upcoming tenure decision and wondered if they could let me know as soon as possible about the piece, and he was very helpful and was able to get back to me the same day.

  3. My experience was not as good as the previous commenters’. I had to wait a year for a response. Unfortunately when the response finally came it was a rejection. I don’t have a problem with the rejection per se–these things happen–but it would have been nice if I had been given some indication as to what problems the readers had found with the article. It seems somewhat disrespectful to an author to send nothing but the briefest of form letters after having made him/her waste a year of valuable time awaiting a decision.

  4. Muy desorganizados. Pierden material (también a nivel administrativo) y tarden mucho en responder, cuando lo hacen. Incluso cuando intentas contactar con el Editor para preguntar sobre el estado de un artículo no responden, lo cual constituye una evidente falta de profesionalidad. Por otra parte, como mencionaba mi antecesor en su comentario, siete meses de espera para una respuesta inicial es ya de por sí exageradamente abusivo, a lo que añadir otros seis meses más de espera para las correcciones manifiesta ya un caos organizativo incuestionable.
    No dudo que el resultado final sea excelente (de hecho lo es, y la revista tiene muy buenos artículos), pero no recomiendo esta revista para aquellos que luchan contra el reloj del tenure.

  5. Dicen en su página que valoran el tiempo de los colaboradores y suelen tener las evaluaciones en 2 meses, lo cual es totalmente falso. Después de un año , y cansado de respuestas tardías (cuando se producían) en que se repetía el mismo mensaje (su artículo está en evaluación y puede retirarlo si lo desea) decidí renunciar de forma voluntaria a su publicación y enviarlo a otra revista. En mis más de tres décadas de experiencia como investigador nunca me había sucedido algo semejante.

  6. El peer-review y la edición son muy atentos, pero el período de espera entre el envío del manuscrito, su aceptación y su publicación puede llegar a ser de dos años. Además, exigen que te suscribas a la revista para poder publicar en ella ($45).
    Los números de la revista en Muse Project (única manera de acceder online a los artículos) no están actualizados. Publiqué con ellos, pero ahora no estoy muy seguro de que volviera a a hacerlo.

  7. Waited an entire year for a response, although on the website it states that they have a turn around of less than two months. Positive feedback although incomplete. Overall, very unprofessional and a lack of decorum.

  8. The proofs for my article looked great, but the whole process took well over 2 years. I did not receive a conditional acceptance until over a year after the initial submission with no news prior to that. My reader’s comments were thorough and showed a profound knowledge of the area and the bibliography, all of which helped to strengthen the final product.

    Still, and to echo the advice of previous commenters, I would only consider submitting to this journal if you can afford to wait.

  9. I submitted my article in January 2018, received a revise & resubmit in May 2018. I responded quickly to the reviewers, was accepted in September 2018, and the final PDF of the article was sent in March 2019. All in all, useful comments, easy (if somewhat lengthy) process. Super quick responses from their managing editor. I liked working with them, even with the $45 subscription fee (payable once article accepted).
