We’ve added something new to everyone’s account to help you know where your new article submissions are at during their journey through our review and quality control process:
There are 5 steps each article goes through:
- Pending Initial Review: Your article has been received and it is waiting for initial editorial review.
- In Initial Editor Queue: Your article is currently in the Editorial Queue.
- Pending Quality Control Review: Your article initial review has been completed.
- In Quality Control Queue: Your article is in final review.
- Will never get filled in as that means that your article is now live on the site. :)
If you use your mouse to hover over the red boxes as they are filled in… you’ll find little pop up helper tips to remind you about the 5 steps above I just listed.
Hopefully this new status update system will let you know where your article submissions are at in terms of review.
