Peer Review Process

Review process

The review workflow is specifically catered to deal with both contributions that warrant a traditional double blind review and contributions that require an editorial process relying on open commenting (such as in the case of interviews). In the latter case, a member of the advisory board can take on a direct editorial role reviewing and communicating directly with the contributor(s).

Become a reviewer

The reviewers provide advice to the editors for their editorial decisions as well as comments that can help the contributing author(s) develop their contributions. The reviewers perform in these respects valuable services to the journal and are treated thereafter.

  • The journal takes great effort to rely on seasoned reviewers as well as to take on and assist junior scholars in developing their skills in the practice of scholarly reviewing.
  • The journal strives to foster a culture where reviewers perform their task with scholarly integrity and respect.
