Fast-Impact Track Papers


The TOSEM editorial staff will upgrade papers submitted as journal-first papers and with no-more than 45 pages of text (not including bibliography) to fast-impact track papers. Fast-impact track papers benefit from a review time of no more than 90 days for the first review and 45 days for the subsequent review (on the condition that the paper is revised within 45 days as requested by the handling editor).

Upon submission, authors may select the journal-first paper type on the condition that the paper reports completely new research results or presents novel contributions that are significantly extend and not previously reported in prior work. Journal-first papers can be submitted at any time.  The TOSEM agreement with ICSE gives authors of journal-first papers the opportunity to present their result at ICSE.

Please submit your fast-impact track paper through the regular submission site, and select "Journal-First Paper" as the manuscript type. Journal-first papers that comply with the length requirements (no more than 45 pages not including bib) are automatically upgraded to fast-impact track papers.
