A fast-track review of the manuscript is available by authors’ request only for Research Articles (not for Notes). To take this advantage, authors must pay nonrefundable 1,000,000 Korean won ($1,000) for fast-track review only. If authors take the fast-track review option, the first decision are guaranteed within 10 days. If the fast-tracked manuscript would be recommended as “minor or major revision”, it will be considered as a general track manuscript. However, once the manuscript is accepted, the manuscript will be published in the following issue of The Plant Pathology Journal. The Editor-in-Chief has the authority to change a fast-track manuscript to a general track manuscript if authors fail or delay to pay the fast-track review charge. Fast-track review does not guarantee acceptance of the manuscript.
