  1. One of the best publishing experiences I had. I sent my paper just on time for the Spanish Issue due date, and I got an answer a month later. I got the proofs two months after the initial submission and the article came out the presses 5 months after that. Overall, a wonderful experience. This is an extraordinarily well-managed journal; the communication with the editor was always expedite and very professional. One of the best journals out there. Highly recommended.

  2. Agreed with first comment. Get the article in by Sept. 15 and you'll have an answer by November or so. Article should be out by March although sometimes there are minor delays, but nothing more than a couple of months. Easy to work with, very professional, great turnaround.

  3. MLN is one of the best academic journals in the field. Highly recommended.

  4. To previous entry: And because?... Such statements without justification come off as completely arbitrary or as if a "mole" from MLN were posting these comments...

  5. They don't give any comments when they reject your article, with the "excuse" that they don't have time before their issue appears. A rejection with no explanation whatsoever does not help in any sense to the profession.

  6. I obtained excellent feedback on how to revise my article. Very professional and fast.

  7. I have also had a very positive experience with this journal. Very professional and extremely efficient. The articles I have read in this journal are significant contributions to the field and are well written. In my opinion, this is a top notch venue.
