    February 15 to 24? Now, that’s what I call precision!

    I keep hearing that the “empirical studies” show that the window is in February, but my experience last year was to the contrary. I submitted the last week of February and a large number of journals weren’t able to review it for some time because their boards hadn’t rolled over or they were waiting until after spring break. I had a few offers very quickly and then had a lot of trouble trying to get expedited reviews because of this. So, despite the “empirical” evidence, I’m holding mine another week or two this year.

  3. The problem with timing the window is that it changes every year. Journals all have different times in which they slate new boards, and sometimes journals might vary it from year to year. Thus, there is no perfect time for the “March” window. I typically send out my pieces around the last week of February. But I bet you’re safe sending out a few weeks later.
