Editorial Procedure

In keeping with the interdisciplinary spirit, the journal will use a double blind peer review system in which reviewers are drawn from disciplines relevant to the article itself. These reviewers are encouraged to provide substantive, constructive feedback for each submission.

Peer reviewers will use a standard checklist to evaluate articles and advise editors, but particular attention will focus on qualitative feedback in the form of constructive comments.
