Our journals are all peer reviewed; reviewers are sought who are knowledgeable of practice in the field and who will be constructively critical of research methods used.


Reviewers are asked to comment on the paper’s originality, its usefulness for practitioners, whether it is well structured and has a clear argument, and whether the author demonstrates awareness of other related research and practice, especially in other parts of the world. The reviewing process usually takes 2-3 months.
