Review Policy

Articles proceed through a four-tier process of peer-review. Submissions are first sent to a member of the Review Panel who will make their comments on the article before submitting it to a member of the Editorial Board. These editors will decide whether the submitted article is ready to be passed on to the Staff Readers, who are members of the University’s lecturing community, and who are the final readers of each article before it is returned to the General Editors for final review.
