Rejection of NGSQ submissions usually usually occurs within one to three
months. Acceptances may occur in a comparable time frame but many take
longer. A common scenario is for Melinde and me to ask the author to
revise the paper to address field reviewers' concerns. Less often we ask
the authors to revise the paper before we send it out for field review.
In either case the time the authors take for the revision may add months
before a decision can be made, since preparing the revision may require
further research. Once we receive a revision, we may make a decision
within days and offer a publication contract. ---- Tom
