For all journals, the time to decision will vary for each individual paper, depending on the review process and availability of reviewers. The majority of our journals accept submissions on an ongoing, rolling basis and there is no deadline for submission of your article unless it is for a special issue. Each Sage journal has its own editorial office and Manuscript Submission Guidelines.

How can I find the time to decision for a journal?

To find out the time to decision for a specific journal, please follow the below instructions:

  • Go to the Sage Journals platform.
  • Search for the journal title.
  • When in the journal’s homepage, click on the manuscript submission guidelines tab. This tab will include more information on the submission and review process for the journal. 
  • Scroll to the bottom of this section until you find the Journal Editor or Publishing Editor's contact information. 
  • Contact the editorial office via these listed details.
