Journal of Cleaner Production 33.9 wks 39.9 wks n/a 2 1 (bad) 1 (bad) Rejected
Motivation: The whole review process took too long. In the resubmission of the manuscript (where extensive changes were made), the editor said that he received two conflicting reviews, one reviewer was satisfied with the changes, the other acknowledged the changes but thought it was still not ready for publication. This whole process took almost a year and it would be good to have an input earlier on.
Journal of Cleaner Production 7.8 wks 31.7 wks n/a 2 5 (excellent) 5 (excellent) Accepted
Motivation: It took time to publish in this journal but I think JCL consider quality and rigour in Publication.
Journal of Cleaner Production 13.4 wks 21.0 wks n/a 5 2 (moderate) 1 (bad) Rejected
Motivation: Referee reports in second round were of poor quality, but it also seems that the editor considered the paper to be not within the aims and scope of the journal - which is of course ok, but usually this gives you a desk rejection.
Journal of Cleaner Production 36.0 wks 40.7 wks n/a 3 4 (very good) 4 (very good) Accepted
Motivation: The overall process was quite long. It took almost 1 year for the article to be published. The reviewers comments were sensible and the suggested changes improved the quality of the paper.
Journal of Cleaner Production 5.3 wks 5.3 wks n/a 2 4 (very good) 4 (very good) Accepted
Motivation: In this case, it went on well. In another manuscript, reviewing time went more than 20 weeks.
Journal of Cleaner Production 3.3 wks 3.3 wks n/a 4 4 (very good) 4 (very good) Accepted
Motivation: Dr. Huising and Dr. Klemes do great job in taking the manuscript, handling and finding reviewers and maintaining a fast communication in all aspects. JCP was the most efficient journal that I have worked with so far. I can assure you that you will receive iniitial feedback in less than 2-2.5 months
