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.
