In August 2015, the ASA Committee on Publications voted to modify the summary table accompanying annual ASA editors’ reports to provide better information about the frequency and timing of editorial decisions. The goal is to clarify authors' chances of having manuscripts accepted, and to provide information about the length of time authors can expect to wait for decisions. The table shown below reports on decisions, as of March 1, 2016, for manuscripts submitted in the 2015 calendar year.
In fall 2016 the American Sociological Association (ASA) and the Center for Social Science Research (CSSR) at George Mason University will launch an online survey for all those who submitted manuscripts (whether published or not) and reviews to the American Sociological Review between 1991 and 2010.
