Are weekends and holidays included in the turnaround time?


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

AJE is closed for several U.S. holidays and deadlines are delayed for these days and expedited timelines may not be available.

For 2022, the days are:

January 3

March 4

May 5

June 20

July 4

September 5

November 24

November 25

December 23

December 26

December 30 

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.
