I am the author of a 12-page double-column manuscript submitted to IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics. Here is the record of the updates within the journal online system, corresponding to the aforementioned manuscript:
Submission Finalization: 7th Aug. 2015
Under Review: 11th Aug. 2015
Awaiting EIC Decision: 16th Sep. 2015
The journal has declared that the authors might expect the result between 8 up to 10 weeks after the submission. But how is it possible to review a 12-page manuscript with a 6-page supplementary material just within one month?
With a full sense of anxiety, I might think that it would be a sinister sign for the early rejection of the manuscript.
Does anybody have any experience with this journal or similar transaction ones, with such very short review-to-result time interval, to evaluate my situation?
