This journal has a particularly high demand for new articles. Although OL has a quick comment turnaround time, it is difficult to get articles accepted.

The first OL will only review the manuscript for one month and five days, and will receive it directly.The second OL has been reviewed for more than five months. No one has reviewed the manuscript. The seventh reviewer finished the trial in three days and received it directly, but the result is still very good.

the first select was rejected, the reviewer suggested to re-attend after the revision,After adding 25% of the content based on the rejected comments and resubmitting it, I accepted it.Overall, it is relatively smooth, and the article is innovative, but the research is not deep, and it can be seen that the review has a greater emphasis on innovation.

The signal and optical cross direction. In general, the journal review is really fast. In other directions, the first trial is for several months, and OL will produce results within one month.The length of the article is also very short, and the overall price is very high.I originally wanted to submit in the signal direction. It turned out that the review was slow and the publication volume was low (1, 200 in a year). The length was very long and the difficulty was great. The key point was that the partition was still low. I really didn't understand it.....Fortunately, I selectd for OL.Suggestions for everyone, if it is able to cross or touch the optical, or go to the optical journal to select better, choose a wide range, the journal cost is very high

Optics Letters' review speed is as fast as ever, and the first trial results are notified within 1 month and a few days.Ol mainly accepts innovative work. Since last year, the review request has increased. Without overhaul, only direct accept and minor repairs are required. Therefore, the new impact factor is expected to be higher and will continue to rise.

The review results were received 3 weeks after submission, and minor repairs were directly acceptd.OL is an authoritative journal in the field of optoelectronics. Two years ago, he changed to a professor at the University of Rochester as the editor-in-chief. The number of journals received was decreasing, but the overall quality of the published papers was further improved. The impact factor will be the same in a few years.OSA's OE is open to the next level.

Two reviewers, one is suggesting to modify the coordinates of one figure to receive, the other is very pitted, and will use his own research on the small direction criteria to measure the experimental parameters in the submission.The problem is also very unprofessional. The result is directly rejected, so the submission was rejected for two months; now it is changed to OE, and so on.

OE/OL Review is generally faster, but when it is slow, I will encounter it, from submission to the first comment (rejection) for 2 months.A reviewer has been dragging on for too long.The strange thing is that 3 reviewers and 2 rejections mean that during the last one month without reviewing the manuscript, there were rejections in the final review, and the final review deadline was over.In the past two weeks, why are editors not dealing directly?There is also a reviewer who has encountered a reviewer for the second time. From the approval of the review to the completion of the review, it is almost 2 hours. According to my review opinion, it is likely to be one of the rejecters.I wish you all good luck
