Viewing the Status of a Manuscript

Authors of manuscripts under consideration by journals of the American Physical Society can obtain immediate information on the status of their papers using the form below.

Please note that referees are reminded on a regular schedule. Although the initial reminder to a given referee will appear on the listing, subsequent reminders to the same referee will not necessarily appear on the status report.

Also, it is important to note that the list of events appears in reverse chronological order, and this is determined by the date the action was sent out or received by our system.
