I had submitted a manuscript to an SCIE indexed journal 1 month ago. I had selected an Associate Editor for my manuscript.
The journal website said that if my manuscript is not deemed fit for peer review then I will be informed and it will be rejected.
To my utter surprise the paper showed the status "Under Review" from Day 1. I dont understand how can an Editor so quickly find reviewers.
Till date after 1 month it is still showing the status "Under Review".
Should I send an email asking the Associate Editor regarding the status of my journal or is it too early to enquire about it?
I am in a fix.However I dont know how can a Paper be sent to "Under Review "so quickly.
Any comments on this will be helpful.
