The CJEM board provides expert advice and guidance to the staff on policy, content, organizational direction, and attracting new authors and subscribers. The editorial board reserves the final right to accept or reject submitted papers, at its discretion.
This review process will be fully implemented in 2021. In the interim, the Editorial Board (along with designated peers) will perform all steps and stages in the review process.
The editorial board reviews the proposal/abstract submission, and decides whether to proceed with a peer review. If the decision is to proceed, the paper’s lead author will be invited to submit a full manuscript and peer reviewers will be assigned.
The full manuscript is reviewed by peers. Reviewers may decide to reject the manuscript, to ask the lead author to revise the manuscript based on accompanying comments, or to proceed directly to the final stage.
All final manuscripts will be reviewed by the editorial board for suitability for publication. The final decision regarding acceptance will be made by the editorial board, at its sole discretion. Confirmation of acceptance will then be communicated to authors.
