Submission Process

Submissions will be thematized and have specific deadlines for submission (in the spring).  Articles and artifacts should be submitted electronically and will be reviewed by the editor and editorial board. Select authors will be contacted with an invitation to submit an article.

The editor is responsible for determining whether submissions fall within the scope of the Journal. If approved by the editor, the submission is then reviewed by a minimum of two editors who will complete their evaluation and make one of the following recommendations:

  • manuscript is accepted with no revisions

  • manuscript is accepted with minor revisions

  • manuscript should be revised and resubmitted

  • manuscript is rejected

Submissions accepted with minor revisions are returned to the author with editor comments, revised by the author, and once approved, published.  Submissions returned with a “revise and resubmit” evaluation are to be rewritten and resubmitted to the review process. Once a submission has been accepted, editors work with authors to copyedit the manuscript and prepare the article for publication.
