HOHENDORFFI, Jean Von; DESOUSA, Diogo Araújo; PEREIRA, Anderson Siqueira  e  KOLLER, Silvia Helena. On "waiting lines": time between submission and acceptance dates of manuscripts in brazilian psychology journals. Temas psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.24, n.4, pp. 1329-1341. ISSN 1413-389X.

Scientific journal are a major mean for disseminating scientific findings, and play a crucial role in the development and updating of science. However these goals require an efficient editorial process. The aims of this study were to describe the average time between submission and acceptance of manuscripts in high quality Brazilian journals in Psychology and to investigate associations between the submission/acceptance time and aspects of the editorial process. We selected 44 journals from the highest strata of the Psychology Qualis CAPES. Published articles available online in the last four numbers of each journal were consulted in regard to the declared time between the dates of submission and acceptance (N = 2,580). The average submission/acceptance time was 235.37 days (SD = 192.95). The higher the Qualis stratum of the journal, the longer the submission/acceptance time. The higher the number of members in the editorial board, the faster submission/acceptance time. The submission/acceptance time was faster in journals of associations/councils as compared to journals of public and private universities/colleges. Results are discussed emphasizing the impact of a long editorial process in the dissemination of science and the assessment of researchers and scientific journals. Suggestions are offered to make the editorial process more effective.
