New feature: Rapid Reports (faster than a speeding bullet)!

We are very pleased to announce a new category of articles to be published in AJP:Lung: Rapid Reports (or speeding bullet).  This publication is meant for authors  wishing to communicate new findings which could potentially have a major impact on the field. The manuscript does not need to tell a complete story, but must be compelling, innovative and novel. The manuscript may contain 4000 to 5000 words and up to 4 figures and/or tables. A decision (accept, reject or minor revisions) will be reached within approximately 10 days from receipt of the manuscript by the Editor. If encouraged to revise, authors will be asked to submit first revisions 14 days after first decision. A final decision on first revisions will be rendered by the editors within approximately 5 days of resubmission.
