Peer Review Process

All articles submitted to the Journal of British and Iritish Innovative Poetry are initially assessed by one of the co-editors, who decides whether or not the article is suitable for peer review. Submissions considered suitable for peer review are assigned to one or more independent experts, who assess the article for clarity, validity, and sound methodology.

The Journal of British and Iritish Innovative Poetry operates a double-blind peer review process, meaning that authors and reviewers remain anonymous for the review process. The review period is expected to take up to two months. Reviewers are asked to provide formative feedback, even if an article is not deemed suitable for publication in the journal.

Based on the reviewer reports the editor will make a recommendation for rejection, minor or major revisions, or acceptance. Overall editorial responsibility rests with Scott Thurston, who is supported by co-editor Gareth Farmer and an expert, international Editorial Board.

Special issues (referred to as 'Special Collections') will be handled in exactly the same way, except for those based on conference proceedings, which will normally be single-blind peer reviewed. The work of the co-editors and editorial board will be additionally supported by the appointment of one or more guest editors of the special issue.
