Issue Production

During production, submissions are reviewed by graduate students from a variety of disciplines. Initially, each submitted work will receive two reader reports and a decision from the editors. Works accepted for publication will be returned to writers for revision based on the feedback provided in the reader reports. Writers may also be invited to revise and resubmit their work before it is accepted. After initial revisions, accepted works are reviewed again by a member of the editorial board. If no further revisions are required, the manuscripts are passed along to one of the journal’s copy editors. Once writers return corrected proofs, the works are prepared in digital space in preparation for the issue’s release.

For Spring Issue · January—April
