Timescale to publish an article for a Springer Nature journal

It is not possible to put a definitive timescale on when an article will be published as there are many aspects in the process which are unpredictable. For example, although we try to limit the review period as much as possible we are highly dependent on the availability of reviewers and the time they are able to allot to each review, and therefore for a full research article the review process can typically take from 3 to 6 months.

If further information about the speed of publishing an article is available, it will be found on the journal's page on SpringerLink.  Please contact the journal for any submission related queries.
