Our Peer Review Policy
Once the submission is received by the managing editor, it is forwarded to the associate editor, who will do an initial check of the submission, and then forward the submission (without the author’s name/institution) to two or three peer reviewers in the field that corresponds to the submission’s topic/content matter.
The peer reviewers will review the entry and give feedback within five or six weeks of receiving the submission.
The peer reviewers will make one of four recommendations:
1) Do not publish
2) Revise and resubmit
3) Publish, but with recommended substantial changes/additional research
4) Publish with light changes to style and grammar.
Once the associate editor receives the recommendations from the reviewers, they (or the managing editor, in some cases) will contact the author of the submission and notify them of the decision on their article and discuss possible future steps if applicable.
