The old child’s nursery ryhme goes 30 days has September, May, June and November.
For journal editors the ryhme goes something like this: many manuscripts arrive in September, May and January (if it was July it would ryhme but it is not). Not so poetic but interesting point.
I had forgotten the life of a Senior Editor has very regular peaks and valleys! January is one of the peeks! Bring it on – the more submissions the merrier!
