Backlog of Applied Mathematics Research Journals

By Sakse Oerstavik

Here we present a backlog report for a broad range of journals of interest to the nonlinear dynamics/applied mathematics community. Backlog can be defined as the time from when the editors receive an article until the article is published. All the data in this article has been gathered using information freely available in the local library, i.e. the latest available edition of the various journals. Some additional data (marked *) have been taken from a similar report in `Notices of the American Mathematical Society, Volume 44, Number 4, April 1997' which focused on more `pure' mathematics journals.

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. A - denotes that no information was available. When the latest edition was a special issue, we used a previous issue. Lastly, if your journals do not appear here, email us; we can add them in a future report.
