Services for Authors

Rigorous, expert peer review

Each paper accepted for peer review is reviewed by a minimum of two peer reviewers drawn from the journal's editorial board and peer reviewer pool.  Both sources are managed by the editorial decision-maker.

Submission to first editorial decision including peer review in 3-4 weeks

All editorial decisions are made by the journal's independent editorial decision maker: the editor in chief or associate editor.  Our editorial system is custom-built to efficiently generate high-quality peer review reports.

Rapid publication in 2-4 weeks after final acceptance

Efficient, professional production staff and experienced contractors work with authors to acheive optimal results.

Paper promotion after publication through scholarly databases, social media, and opted-in journal newsletters

Papers appear in traditional scholarly databases and indexes, and modern social media and email newsletters to maximise visibility for published papers.  Optional additional promotion through our collaboration with TrendMD

Article- and journal-level usage data (currently in beta)
