Statistics (as of June 7 2010)
PVLDB Journal Track was launched in September 2008, with the first monthly batch processed on Oct 1. Statistics reported in June 2009 included submissions up to (and including) April 1 of 2009. Of the 65 papers submitted in that 7 months period, 8 were accepted, and 7 more were carried over into the current year, with revisions requested.
This year's statistics are for 11 months, beginning 1 May 2009 and ending 1 March 2010. The batch of 1 April 2010 was handled by the 2011 team.
Total submissions = 119 (in 11 month period)
Total accepts = 30 (All accepts went through at least one round of revision)
Manuscripts still under revision = 8
Additionally, 5 of 7 papers carried over from the previous year were accepted. Also, one paper submitted 1 April 2010, and thus part of "next year", was accepted. Thus there are a total of 36 papers from journal track accepted for presentation in VLDB 2010.
Journal track will be the only mechanism for reviewing papers submitted for presentation in VLDB 2011.
