Review process
This Journal operates a dual review system that aims to encourage debate and discussion about contemporary thinking.

Papers submitted to Issues are first checked by the Editor to ensure they conform to the submission guidelines (details on the Contribute page), then submitted to the Editorial Panel for blind peer-review. The Panel may accept the paper, accept with changes, or reject. Authors may opt to release the rejected paper into the Reviews section. Accepted papers will be published in the next Issue.

Papers submitted for Review are checked by the Editor for conformance to submission guidelines, then placed in the Reviews section of the Journal. Registered users (contributers and subscribers) may then comment on the paper and read other comments in the moderated blog-type environment. Authors will have the opportunity to respond to comments, and to amend their submission.

Papers in the Reviews section may also be promoted to the next Issue at any time by the Editorial Panel. Authors will be informed of this promotion, and have the option not to promote their paper.
