Peer Review Process

All submitted articles are submitted to double blind peer review. Reviewers comment on a work’s strengths, weaknesses, make suggestions for improvement, and offer recommendations to the editors (accept, revise, reject). The review process takes between 4 and 6 weeks.

Peer Reviewers are selected by the editors on the basis of disciplinary expertise. Selected reviewers are required to comment on a submission’s strengths, weaknesses, make suggestions for improvement, and offer recommendations to the editors (accept, revise, reject).

All submissions are initially assessed by an Editor, who decides whether or not the article fits the scope of the journal and is suitable for peer review. Submissions considered suitable are assigned to one or more independent experts, who assess the article for clarity, validity, and sound methodology.

Based on the reviewer reports the editor will make a recommendation for rejection, minor or major revisions, or acceptance. Overall editorial responsibility rests with the journal’s Editor-in-Chief, who is supported by an expert, international Editorial Board.

Guest Editing an Issue

If you would like to apply to guest edit a themed issue of the journal, you should contact the editor(s) by email first. If your proposal seems appropriate and viable, you will be invited to submit a more formal proposal, including proposed contents, titles, abstracts, etc.

This will be a dialogic process. The editorial team, editorial board and advisory panel may all be consulted. You will need to persuade all concerned of the relevance, validity, viability and quality of the proposed end result. You will also need to persuade JOMEC Journal of your ability to deliver on time and to the highest standard.

All work must go through a quality review process, which will involve blind review. A decision will be made in discussion with the editorial team about who should review specific articles and/or the issue as a whole. But the guest editor will be expected to be both highly knowledgeable about the topic of their own issue and discerning about what content they are prepared to accept.

Deadlines for first versions and final submissions will be made with the JOMEC Journal editors.
