Information For Authors

Interested in submitting to this journal? Please review the About the Journal page for the journal's policies. For internet security reasons, potential authors first need to register with the journal as a reader. Once that is done, send us an email (editors@epsjournal.org.uk) of your intent to submit. If warranted, we will add an author rubric to your account at which point you may log in to the account and begin the submission process. We expect authors to respect our editors' and reviewers' time and follow the Author Guidelines.

We usually take 2 weeks for internal review and up to an additional 4 to 6 weeks for external review (once we have received agreements to review). Thus, unless the submission is rejected early on as inappropriate for EPSJ, authors should expect to receive a response between 6 to 8 weeks after submission.

Our decision categories are as follows:

ACCEPT: Our decision is to ACCEPT the article for publication (subject only to satisfactory responses to copyediting queries, if any should arise).

REVISE: This means that, subject to satisfactory revision, EPSJ is likely to accept the submission. Nonetheless, note that we may send any revised version to the same, or new, reviewers. Final acceptance depends on the quality of the revision and/or a second review.

RESUBMIT FOR REVIEW: This means that EPSJ remains interested in the topic and that, if you do resubmit, the submission will go through another round of internal and external review.

DECLINE: Our decision is to DECLINE the submission. Likely reasons include that the submission is inappropriate for EPJS (does not fit its aims & scope) or that the submission is substantially flawed.
