Editorial & Review Process
Following submission of an article, the Editor and Associate Editor review the paper to make sure it aligns with the aims of the journal, as well as with the aims of IAFOR.
If the article does not touch on issues relating to at least two of the key IAFOR goals – interdisciplinary, intercultural and international – the paper is rejected without undergoing peer review.
If the article passes the initial editorial review stage, it is sent for peer review. The review process involves a blind review by two international reviewers. If the reviewers are not in agreement, a third reviewer may be used to break the tie.
Reviewers may request revisions, after which a subsequent review process will be necessary.
The editorial and review process is coordinated by the Editor.
