The JDS reviewing process aims to provide the highest quality reviews as timely as possible.
To achieve high quality, several non-typical steps are part of our timeline such as working on improving reviews in terms of how constructive they are and checking them against our reviewing guidelines before releasing them to authors. The authors subsequently get the chance to rebuttal.
To achieve a timely response, the whole editorial board works on a fixed schedule, anticipating paper submissions on specific deadlines and working on every step of the process timeline within specific time windows.
From the moment of submission, authors will receive their first response of high-quality reviews within three months.
