Econometrica Editors' Report, 2020–2021
THE THREE TABLES BELOW provide summary statistics on the editorial process in the form presented in previous editors’ reports. Table I indicates that we received 1258 new submissions this year. This number is the highest ever, and reflects a growing trend in the last few years. The number of accepted papers (112) has increased from last year’s 77. Table III gives data on the time to first decision for decisions made in this reporting year, with 73% of papers decided within three months and 98% decided within six months. Decision times for revisions were 60% returned within three months and 95% within six months. Table IV provides information about the total time to publication for accepted articles. Papers accepted during 2020–2021 spent an average of 7 months in the hands of the journal (adding up all “rounds”) and 17 months in the hands of the authors (carrying out revisions) prior to final acceptance; the time between acceptance and publication averaged 6 months. The Econometric Society has a policy that gives authors the option of requesting the reports, cover letters, and decision letter of a paper rejected at Econometrica be transferred to Theoretical Economics or Quantitative Economics. TE and QE have independent review procedures, but the transfer may expedite the review process. The annual reports of TE and QE contain information about transferred manuscripts.
