Turnaround Time:

How Long Does It Take to Publish an Article?

The turnaround time for article orders depends solely on the plan and any add-ons to which you are subscribed.

Subscription Plans and Add-ons:

  • Base Plans: The turnaround time for these types of plans is 3-5 business days (excluding weekends). Additionally, please note that turnaround times on subscriptions without a Priority Publishing Guarantee are subject to change depending on the workload given to our teams.

  • Priority Publishing Add-on: This add-on grants you access to priority publishing 24 hours after approval. NOTE: Some plans are pre-built with priority publishing, with no need to purchase an add-on.

When Does the Timer Start on Turnaround Time?

The timer for your turnaround time starts when our Editors and Image Review Team forwards your draft to our Publishing Team. This occurs once they have ensured that the content aligns with our publishing partners' guidelines and is eligible for publication. It's important to note that the timer does not begin while we await your approval regarding any changes made to your article draft.


Published Article Edits:

We accept minor post-publishing edits to correct typos, punctuation mistakes, or formatting issues.

Major edits, such as article rewrites, paragraph-length edits, and backdating an order by more than a week, are not entertained once an article has been published.

For more information about requesting an edit on a published order, click here.

Note: Our editorial team reserves the right to deny or reject content that does not adhere to our publishing partner's guidelines.
