Peer Review and Decision Process
The Manuscript Status on ScholarOne displays “AE assigns reviewers,” if the number of agreed-reviewers is less than four.
The Manuscript Status on ScholarOne displays “Waiting for Reviewers’ Scores” if one or more agreed reviewers have not submitted their scores. TMI allows reviewers three weeks – may be extended per request – to complete the review.
TMI’s average turnaround time, from initial submission to decision, is about 7-weeks. However, the duration of an individual submission may vary drastically because there are many stochastic factors involved in the review process.
