Review Speed

Review Speed

Research is often a slow process, requiring the careful design, optimization, and replication of experiments. By the time you have accrued enough data to write a manuscript, you will likely want to publish as soon as possible. Rapid publication can accelerate the dissemination of findings, decrease the likelihood of being scooped, and allow a quicker return to the laboratory to work on the next study. Whether you are currently performing experiments or are in the midst of writing, the following International Journal of Molecular Sciences - Review Speed data may help you to select an efficient and right journal for your manuscripts.

Submission To 1st Editorial Decision

- days

The average number of days from manuscript submission to the initial editorial decision on the article. If your manuscript is rejected by the editor without the peer-reviewed process, please share with the community how many days you got the rejection email from the editor's office. If your manuscript is sent to reviewers, please share with the community how many days the evaluated process took by editor's office (not include the evaluated process of reviewers).

About

The International Journal of Molecular Sciences (ISSN 1422-0067; CODEN: IJMCFK; ISSN 1661-6596 for printed edition) provides an advanced forum for molecular studies in biology and chemistry, with a strong emphasis on molecular biology and molecular medicine. Our aim is to provide rigorous peer review and enable rapid publication of cutting-edge research to educate and inspire the scientific community worldwide.We encourage scientists to publish their experimental, theoretical, and computational results in as much detail as possible, in a regular section (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijms/sections) or in a Special Issue (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijms/special_issues). Therefore, there is no restriction on the length of the papers or the number of electronic multimedia and supplementary files. For all articles, the full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced. Electronic files regarding the full details of the experimental procedure, if unable to be published in a normal way, can be deposited as supplementary material (including animated pictures, videos, interactive Excel sheets, software executables and others).Manuscript categories: original scientific research articles, comprehensive reviews, communications, case reports, letters, commentaries, editorials, etc.In the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, molecules are the object of study; among those studies, we find:fundamental theoretical problems of broad interest in biology, chemistry and medicine;breakthrough experimental technical progress of broad interest in biology, chemistry and medicine; andapplication of the theories and novel technologies to specific experimental studies and calculations. The International Journal of Molecular Sciences (IJMS) is a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal covering research in chemistry, molecular physics (chemical physics and physical chemistry), and molecular biology. It is published by MDPI and was established in 2000. The editors-in-chief are Maurizio Battino, Paschalis Alexandridis, Bamin Khomami, Dongho Kim, Maurizio Margaglione, Micheline Misrahi, Antonio Pisani, Jeffrey L. Platt, José L. Quiles, Antonio Rescifina, Claudiu T. Supuran, Irmgard Tegeder, Charles Brennan, Kurt A. Jellinger, Stephen A. Bustin, Xiaofeng Jia, Guido R.M.M. Haenen, Vladimir N. Uversky, Michael Welsh, Marco d'Ischia, Andreas Taubert, Setsuko Komatsu, Ian A. Nicholls.
