I'll start. How quick is Analysis these days?

1-2 months

Analysis used to desk reject the majority of submissions, but now they seem to be sending more papers out to reviewers, which increases the average turn around time a bit. It's also worth mentioning that since the change in policy, Analysis has taken a turn for the worst in terms of average article quality.

All my submissions to Analysis have been rejected after almost exactly one month (with comments).

How about... AJP?

I was recently rejected after ~2.5 months at AJP, and received a very thorough report.

Synthese?

(Also: great thread!)

I always hear back exactly three months after submitting to Noûs or PPR in the initial round and within six weeks in subsequent rounds.

How could a forum structured like this possibly supply that information? You would need data, from which to make statistical inferences. Slightly differently, do you think it is rational to make a decision on where to submit based upon the anecdotes (and conjecture) supplied here?

I'll start.

This is, of course, more useful - at least as a stage for identifying reasons for action: https://airtable.com/shrWKotYTw0ezNN4N/tbl9E479DxjlJf2zJ

I hear Oxford Studies in Ancient Phil has sunk to average 8 months under a new editor. Apparently, lots of people now avoid it.

JPhil, Mind, Erkenntnis... avoid these.

AJP, Nous, PPR, Analysis, PQ, BJPS... these are well-run operations.

You have to wonder how long JPhil will be able to trade on former glories. My guess is... not much longer. It used to be regarded as a 'Top 2' journal but now it is barely 'Top 4'. Soon it will be 'Top 5', and so on...

Use your imagination. This forum could easily supply information that isn't captured in the statistics. The fact that Analysis has a new editorial staff doesn't show up in the statistics yet, for example. And it could be that someone here knows that the new editors have a new policy of not desk rejecting 9 out of every 10 submissions, which would suggest that their turn around times would be longer than they were in the past. That would be relevantly useful information, depending on your publication goals.

Is anyone even filling out the surveys here anymore? https://blog.apaonline.org/journal-surveys/

I don't seem to see any entries from 2017. All this info seems to be outdated, if what Nemesius is true.
