どのような状況で査読を急ぐことが多いか

大学院生最終学年の論文審査前ですね

日本の研究室では毎年秋の風物詩となっています
ただこれには制度として賛否両論があります
査読を急ぐあまり、投稿先のジャーナルのレベルを下げざるをえなくなるなどのデメリットがあります
これに対して一部の大学では自大学内での論文審査で卒業の可否を決定し、ジャーナルへのアクセプトは求めないなどの制度を作っています

逆に査読をジャーナルに任せることで、自大学のリソースを大きく使わずに論文の質を担保できるというメリットがあります
はやりのビジネスプロセルアウトソーシング(BPO)ですね

査読を急いで欲しい時にどうしたらよいか

査読を急ぐような状況にならないことです。
余裕を持って論文作成に取り掛かりましょう
2年、ないし4年はとても短いです

どうしても査読を急いで欲しい

お願いはするけど、自己主張はしすぎず、死ぬほど丁寧に波風立たない文面を練りましょう。

そして何よりも、revisonを1発で通りましょう

Dear Editor,

I understand that you must be extremely busy, but I was wondering about the status of my manuscript [title, reference number] that I submitted on 2024/02/27. Have you heard back from the referees yet?

Thanks a lot for your time.

Best regards, [name]

・投稿から時間が経っていることをアピールするパターン

Dear Editor,

Our paper intitled [XX] has been submitted to the [XXX] journal in [DATE1], after 6 months we received the reviewers’ remarks that were taken into consideration while revising the paper. In [DATE2] (3 months ago), we re-submitted the revised version and we answered all the reviewers’ comments in separated letter.

Currently, I have a time constraint to defend my thesis that requires a published journal paper, for this reason I am wondering if there is a possibility to have the results of reviewing our revised paper in the best short time please?

Thank you

Best Regards,

Dear Editor,

I write concerning our paper X, which we submitted on Y, and for which we submitted a revised version on Z.

My university informs me that, to defend my thesis, I should have a paper accepted for publication by Date A. I know that my university’s rules are not your problem, and I apologize for this, but could I please ask if it would be possible to finish the review process by then?

結局レビュアーとの人と人の関係ですので、相手に依りますし、状況に依ります
どのように聞くのが正解、というものはなく、急かすこと自体が常識的ではありません

急がなくても良いように計画的にいきましょう
ただ相手も人間、本当に忘れている事もあるので丁寧にコミュニケーションを取りましょう
