A fews days ago I mentioned I'd sent a revised draft of a paper off to the journal I want to publish it. Well, I heard back today from the journal's editor, and he's happy with the revisons. That's a relief.
The thing that caught me off guard was the editor's speed getting back to me. He took four days. Wow. For some perspective, I've been waiting for almost eight months to hear anything at all from another journal.
Is it a coincidence that the fast journal's not a philosophy journal and the glacial one is? I feel like the answer is likely no.
