Volume 17, Issue 1 (2018)

New Publishing Schedule

Beginning with 17(1), JMASM is shifting to a publishing schedule that more closely reflects its online-only context. Rather than creating a paginated volume twice a year and publishing all at once, articles will be published as soon as they've made it through the production process (peer review, copyediting, typesetting). New volumes will open in May, new issues in May and November, as before, but articles may appear sequentially all year. 17(1), for instance, will populate all summer, closing at the end of October. Articles will feature the date of acceptance to the Journal and the date of final publication.

None of the Journal's process has otherwise changed-- the editorial, peer review, and production processes remain as described (see About This Journal). Our hope is that this new publishing schedule will ultimately reduce the average time between acceptance and publication by freeing the publication schedule of articles that are developed quickly from that of articles developed more slowly.
