Q: How many peer reviews to expect before publishing how long do they take?
Thank you for your question. The number of rounds of peer review before a final decision varies depending on the reviewers' findings and recommendations and how well these are integrated. After each round, a manuscript can either be accepted, rejected, or sent back for minor or major revisions. In case authors are asked to resubmit after major revisions, journals usually conduct up to 3 rounds of peer review before deciding to not go ahead with publication.
