"What Happened to My Paper?" Part II
Author(s): Jack D. Gaskill

Paper Abstract

Because sequels seem to be very popular in the movie-making business, I decided to write a sequel to an editorial that appeared in the July 1988 issue of this journal. That editorial presented some statistics related to the length of time it takes for papers to be published in Optical Engineering. As you may recall if you read it, slightly more than half of the total time required for publication is taken up by the review phase, and the excessive length of the review phase is often caused by delinquent referees. In the present editorial I give some hints for authors that may help reduce the delinquent referee problem.
