I have a friend (no, really) who recently asked me which (respectable) journals are not particularly backlogged right now. I wasn't really sure, but I figured the GFP would know. Any thoughts?
I'm less interested in the time-to-referee's-decision, because that seems to be highly variable (although there are, of course, some journals where the editor keeps things moving— yay to editors thus described, and to referees who are efficient!) and more interested in identifying journals with short time-to-publication-for-papers that have been accepted, where that means something like less than 6 months and/or less than a year.
