If your submission reaches us after our posted deadlines, ELR will automatically consider your submission for publication in the next issue of the journal.  If you decide to publish your submission elsewhere in the interim, ELR kindly asks that you notify us of your decision, so that we may remove your submission from future consideration.


If your submission has been selected for publication by another journal, the Submissions Committee of ELR will entertain requests for “Expedited Review” by e-mail or phone, provided the author timely provides the following four (4) pieces of information in conjunction with his/her request:

I.  An updated resume/CV

II.  An abstract of the article/comment in question

III.  A list of all publications which have already accepted the article/comment submitted

IV.  The deadlines for each journal that has already accepted the article/comment submitted

It will be the goal of the Submissions Committee, under the direction of the Chief Submissions Editor, to respond to the “Expedited Review” requests within five business days of receipt of such request.  In the event that the author is dealing with deadlines for other journals that expire within one week of receipt of the request to ELR, the Submissions Committee members will make their best effort to give the article/comment fair consideration and review for publication in ELR, and will contact the author with a decision as soon as reasonably possible.
