Submission Review Process
All submissions to the following categories will be peer-reviewed: Research, Practice, Education/Development, and Reviews.
Journal editorial staff will screen those submissions to determine their appropriateness to the journal and the category, and then refer those that are appropriate to two independent reviewers. A double-blind review process will ensue.
Authors will be notified within 48 hours that submissions have been received. The double-blind review process of submissions that are considered appropriate will take approximately 1 month, after which authors will be contacted about the status of the manuscript – e.g., agree to publish as is, agree to publish after minor revision, will reconsider after significant revision, rejection of manuscript. Journal staff will make every effort to expedite the process from initial receipt, through possible revision, to publication.
If submissions are considered inappropriate for the journal or the category, journal editorial staff will contact the author(s) and suggest other publication possibilities.
