Jurnal Kajian Anak (J_Sanak) have developed fast-track peer review options to curtail some of the unnecessary time that lapses between a manuscript being submitted and its publication.
Fast-track peer review prioritizes a manuscript and decreases its publication time.
When a paper is marked for fast track, reviewed and publicated decision is made quickly. Fast tracking might also decrease the amount of time allocated for peer review and editing. It typically cuts the publication time
Jurnal Kajian Anak (J-Sanak) offer fast-track peer review for an additional fee. Authors can choose to fast track a paper for importance or significant impact to public policy. Authors may also choose to fast track a paper in order to publish the research before another journal publishes similar findings or before the information is presented at a conference.
Fast-tracked papers are often more relevant and polished than others, especially when there is a fee involved. There is also no difference in the rejection rate, even when authors have opted to pay for fast track, and there is no preference shown for fast-tracked papers. The only difference these studies have found between a normal submission and one marked for fast track is the rate of time it takes from initial submission to publication.
