I am looking for an adjective for a method or a way of doing things that does not take unnecessary time or doesn't waste time?


This journal has reviewed my paper without taking unnecessary time, without wasting time. Their method is _____ .


From Merriam-Webster:

1 : productive of desired effects
especially : capable of producing desired results with little or no waste (as of time or materials)

1 : having the quality or power of producing especially in abundance

  • I added actual links and block-quote formatting to your answer. – Jason Bassford Supports Monica May 22 '19 at 5:30
  • Thanks, new to this. Is that how the formatting should be? – frathoss May 22 '19 at 13:15
  • It doesn't have to look exactly like that. The main point is that there is a quotation and that you provide accreditation and a link. (Assuming that all of those things are possible.) – Jason Bassford Supports Monica May 22 '19 at 14:52
