Papers will go through an initial round of review and selection by the Editor. Selected papers will go on to receive comments from our editorial board members. Our review process is unblinded, meaning that your identity will be known to the reviewers, and their identity will be known to you.
If you have a paper that you think might fit, please contact Editor or Co-Editor. We are happy to discuss whether your paper fits the scope of our call before submission.
What the series can offer you as a contributor:
- A pre-review of your paper to determine if it is suitable for the series. At this stage we may request some initial revisions, or advise you to submit to another outlet.
- If your paper is accepted to the series, we can then offer one round of constructive peer review from experts in the field, intended to strengthen your early-stages work and help prepare it for submission at a peer review journal.
- Professional copy editing and proof reading.
- Promotion via social media and the Institute’s webpage.
What we are looking for in terms of submissions:
- Original research in the form of an article, of a minimum of 10,000 and maximum of 14,000 words (not including bibliography/works cited).
- A willingness to take on constructive feedback to strengthen your paper.
- Timely responses to editorial queries (selected papers will be asked to respond to comments.
Please note we may also use citation software (i.e., TurnItIn) to verify that citations have been used properly.
