The peer review process alone would probably take longer than that.
If all the data for the experiment had been collected (which it probably hasn't,) and he started writing the paper right now, he would probably submit the paper by the middle of July. Peer review process would take place, requesting revisions. Especially with a project this controversial. If the paper were accepted in October, it might still not make the December issue.
So a peer reviewed paper being published before December is exceptionally unlikely unless all of the steps above have been initiated already.
Thanks for the heads up on the process.
