  1. anybody have experience with the rejection timeline of this journal?

  2. Yes, first round of readers finished their task about 10 weeks after submission. In my case, a split decision meant one more reader, and an ultimate rejection about 6 weeks after that.

    Unfortunately one of the PMLA readers cast aspersions on my research and sank it. Didn't get to defend my credibility and was disappointed that PMLA didn't ask any questions, either. The article has found a happy home elsewhere, no aspersions needed.

  3. I had a similar experience to 'Anonymous March 18," but the first round and the final rejection -- after the split -- took a lot longer, perhaps 9-10 months. Nevertheless, the managing editor was always prompt in responding to all my questions. All in all, I think the process was very fair and I would submit there again.
