Peer Review Process

All articles are initially read by editors before sending for peer review to check for policy compliance (not previously published, proper references, valid citations, readability, etc.) as well as acceptability for the journal.  If the editorial board deems submission worthy of review, it is sent to three peers.  Attempts are made to match reviewers area of specialty with the content of the article.

The timeframe for review is 8 weeks.  

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  2. The submission file is in Microsoft Word, RTF, PDF, or LaTeX document file format.
  3. All URL addresses in the text (e.g., http://pkp.sfu.ca) are activated and ready to click.
  4. The text is single-spaced; uses a 12-point font; employs italics, rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  5. The text has had the authors' names removed. If an author is cited in the bibliography and/or footnotes, "Author" and year are used instead of author's name, paper title, etc. The author's name has also been removed from the document's Properties, which in Microsoft Word is found in the File menu.
