What does "manuscript in process" mean?

The "decision in progress" status means that the editorial board is currently deciding whether or not to publish your work. This is because you have been notified that your manuscript has been accepted for publication. Your manuscript will not be published until it is officially accepted by our editor.

It is common for editors to request some changes to be made to manuscripts before they are published. These can include edits to correct factual errors, change tacky phrases, or make sure that what was intended as satire is understood as such by the reader. Often these changes are minor and do not affect the core of the argument.

When an editor requests that certain changes be made, they will usually send you an email explaining why these changes are being requested and how they will affect how your article is presented once it is published. If any problems arise during the editing process, authors will usually be contacted directly by the editor who requested changes.

Manuscripts in process are always available on our website. You can view your manuscript at any time by clicking on the "Manuscripts &; Articles" tab, then the button for your specific journal.

What is the decision process in the journal?

When a journal shows "decision in progress," it signifies that the editorial board is in the process of making a final decision on your manuscript. There is no set time range for this; it will depend on the journal and the field. Generally, journals want to make sure that accepted manuscripts are published in time for their annual meetings or post-annual conferences.

If your manuscript is being considered for publication, you will be notified of the decision by email or phone. If you do not receive any notification, assume that your manuscript was rejected.

Editors work with authors to ensure that articles are clear and concise without compromising quality. They may ask you to revise your article based on their recommendations or they may simply notify you that parts of your article are inappropriate for the journal. In either case, editors aim to publish high-quality material that will attract readers and encourage them to seek out other relevant content.

As you can see, editorials are an important part of scientific publishing. It is helpful if you know how many people are involved in producing an editorial, how long they take to make their decisions and what methods they use.

What does "decision" mean in this process?

In response to your question, "Decision in Process" normally implies that the associate editor (AE) has reviewed the peer review comments, made a decision on the manuscript based on the comments, and then informed the Editor-in-Chief of their decision (EiC). The AE may consult with other members of the editorial board as needed.

However, "decision" can also imply that the EiC has made the final call on the manuscript's acceptance or rejection. For example, if the EiC rejects a manuscript immediately after reviewing it, they may not need to involve others within the journal to make a decision about whether it should be published. However, if the EiC wants more feedback from others within the journal before making a final call, they would likely ask for reviews of the manuscript by other individuals within the journal. These individuals would then provide their own opinions on the manuscript and could influence the initial decision by the AE.

As another example, let's say that the AE agrees with some but not all of the comments made by the reviewers and then sends the manuscript back to them for additional revisions. In this case, the AE would need to get approval from the EiC before resubmitting the manuscript again. If the EiC rejected the first version too, they would not need to involve others within the journal in order to make a decision about whether to publish the article.
