Editor’s Annual Report 2017: Fast Review under New Editorial Policy


The Econometrics Journal has just published its Annual Report over 2017, with an extensive review of the new editorial policy that was implemented for all new submissions from 1 January 2017.

With the new editorial policy, review times for new submissions have dropped considerably; as promised, most papers are now either summarily rejected within a week or reviewed within 3 months. All in all, the review performance in 2017 is in line with the new editorial policy, which strives to screen within 7 days, review within three months, and avoid major and multiple revisions. We have been and are further streamlining the editorial procedures to further reduce the review times and fully implement the policy to avoid major and multiple revisions.
