OJN FastTrack Service might reduce the editorial process of a manuscript from 1-2months to 1-2weeks through effective and timely follow-ups with reviews, corrections, copyediting, proofing and other processes.
OJN FastTrack is a service by its editorial assistants to help authors publish more quickly without compromising the review, evaluation and editorial processes. This service is effectively achieved through an efficient communication system. The global standard channel of communication for journals is through emails which may be slow and less effective. However, with OJN FastTrack, our specialized editorial assistants use phone calls to communicate the entire process ensuring a faster and more efficient editorial process. We also recruit and pay specialized reviewers to handle the review of FastTracked manuscripts, hence the quick turn-around time.

FastTracking a manuscript has nothing to do with its editorial decision. This is a service by the journals’ editorial assistants NOT by the journal management. The Chief Editor reserves the right to reject or accept a fast-tracked article. It should be noted that this is an optional service.
Moreover, and needful to mention, is the fact that 95% of all fast-tracked articles get accepted and published. This is due to the dedication and diligence on the part of the fast-tracking team coupled with the article's strengths.
