Abstract de la publi numéro 17078
New technology allows us to collect rich and voluminous data about refereeing something that was not possible before. In this quantitative study we consider data about the dates of sending (i) suitable articles to BJET, (ii) the articles to referees, and (iii) when the referees' reports are returned to the editor. To do this we examined data from over 11,000 reports collected between 2005 (when BJET began using ScholarOne as its online editorial manager) and October 2014. We found most of the submissions and responses were made in the earlier part of the week, with some evidence of academics (and the editor) working on Sundays. We also found modest agreement between referees on the quality of individual papers.
