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 for three all-company meetings, so deadlines are delayed for these days and rushes may not be available.

For 2021, the days are:

  • January 1
  • February 11
  • March 5
  • May 31
  • June 17
  • July 5
  • September 6
  • October 14
  • November 25, 26, and 29
  • December 23, 24 and 27

You will see an announcement in your AJE account if there are any upcoming holiday delays.

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.
