Our Editing Process

Our editorial process consists of eight steps:

  1. Anonymization
  2. Senior Editors' First Cut
  3. Cell Group Carriage Review
  4. Senior Associate Editor Check
  5. Senior Editors' First Vote
  6. Communications with Authors
  7. Senior Editors' Second Vote
  8. Formatting and Publication

The process takes roughly four months from the submission cut-off to the date of delivery to our subscribers. Work on issue 1 begins in mid-September and copies are delivered in mid-January, while work on issue 2 begins in mid-January and copies are delivered in mid-May.
