Abstract

VOLUME 74 JOURNAL O F T HE ATMOSPHERIC S CIENCES DECEMBER 2017 EDITORIAL Expedited Contributions (ECs) have been a feature of American Meteorological Society (AMS) journals for six years. The twin goals of ECs when they were established were to reduce the time from submission to publication of research papers and to encourage authors to develop short, concise contributions to the journals. When ECs were created, the time to initial decision was nearly 80 days, and the production time (the time between acceptance and appearance online in final form) was approximately 160 days. Since then, the time to initial decision has been reduced to 60 days, and also the pro- duction time has decreased to around 70 days. In addition, with the introduction of Early Online Releases, papers appear online with a digital object identifier (DOI) within 10 days of acceptance. With these dramatic improvements in the efficiency of peer review and production, the AMS Publications Department has succeeded in achieving the first goal above. While the second goal will always remain something to strive for and to encourage our authors to meet, it was not the primary driver in creating ECs—reduction of production time was.
