Time to Publication

Authors want their latest results reviewed and published in a timely manner. OSA closely monitors the time to publication for each journal to ensure authors' and readers' needs are served while maintaining high standards of quality.

OSA's time to publication statistics are based on the median days from submission completed to online publication. OSA's articles are published online in final form (with pagination and DOI) in the Issues in Progress web page for each journal. On each issue date, all articles mounted on the Issue in Progress will become fixed as the current issue and archived.

The Time to Publication statistics below represent median days for articles published in the January-December 2018 issues.
