1.b. Time to Review

One great thing about having an international editorial team is that someone is usually always online at any given time. It allows us to keep an eye on breaking news stories that come into the queue, or critical issues that need immediate attention.

Our general time to review is 3-5 business days. Factors such as national holidays, and large product launches/events could affect those wait times.
