Are weekends and holidays included in deadline calculations?


Weekends are not included when calculating our deadlines, so if you submit your paper on a Thursday with a four-day turnaround time, it will be ready for you by the following Wednesday.  The specific deadline will be displayed in the purchasing cart.

AJE is also closed for several U.S. holidays. Deadlines are delayed for these days, and expedited timelines may not be available around the holidays.


For 2024, the days are as follows Month/Day/Year (Day of Week, Holiday):

01/01/24 (Monday, New Year's Day)

03/01/24 (Friday, Employee Appreciation Day)

05/27/24 (Monday, Memorial Day) 

06/19/24 (Wednesday, Juneteenth)

07/04/24 (Thursday, Independence Day)

09/02/24 (Monday, Labor Day)

11/28/24 (Thursday, Thanksgiving)

11/29/24 (Friday, Day after Thanksgiving)

12/24/24 (Tuesday, Christmas Eve)

12/25/24 (Wednesday, Christmas)

1/1/25 (New Year's Day)


Our editors are based in the U.S.A., and we give them time off on weekends and to celebrate major US holidays. Because we rely on full-time employees who are experts in their fields, we want to give them breaks and time to celebrate the holidays with family and friends so that we can retain excellent editors and ensure that we are delivering the high quality that we promise.
