Q: Manuscript Status - Editor Assigned
I had submitted a manuscript to a Springer journal. Since the day of submission status of the manuscript has been “Editor assigned”. It has been 62 days since submission. On the 60th day of submission I had enquired about the manuscript status with the journal office, I got a mail saying that they would ask the editor to speed up the process (either will render a decision or initiate a review). The time for a first decision on the journal website is one month. Should I wait for some more time and how long?. What other options do I have?
