UPDATE of Backlog of Applied Mathematics Research Journals

By Sakse Orstavik

Here is another update of the backlog for a range of journals of interest to the nonlinear dynamics community that we presented in issue 8 and issue 12.

Backlog can be defined as the time from when the editors receive an article until the article is published.

Notes: Waiting times are given as averages in months. Two waiting times are reported. The first is the time from when the article was first received by the editors until publication. The second is the time from when the final revision was received or the manuscript was accepted until publication. We have also included the change in percent from the data recorded in issue 8 and issue 12.
