Is it pushy to ask an editor for an update about a journal submission after 4 months of silence?


Recommended Posts

Even if it is pushy, does that matter? In my opinion, an editor's job is to be a liaison between field experts, writers, and a publication team. 

My professor told me there is a wiki page somewhere online that has forums (much like GradCafe) with information about usual wait time, etc, concerning various journals. You should look into that!

Yes, four months is a reasonable amount of time to wait before following up, especially if you do so politely. In fact, I would recommend you do so -- sometimes journals lose track of submissions.
