I work on both in the area of pure Computer Science and in the area of Computational Chemistry/Biology.
Till now I have submitted papers to well known venues(journals) of both these fields. I don’t understand the following situations after paper submission in both these fields:
Submitted papers in non-CS journals follow a quick review procedure i.e. submission – editor assignment – reviewer invited – under review – review completed – […] Turnaround : 3 months
But, for pure CS Journals, every step is late except the first step which is obvious. Turnaround: 10-12 months
What can we infer given such situations in peer review world?
Note: I am talking about majority of journals in both these mentioned fields.
