Peer Review Process

If the content and format of the submitted essay is seen as appropriate by the editors, the paper will then be sent out for 'blind review' by independent referees. Revisions may be required in the light of referees' comments before a decision is made to accept or reject the paper.

All paper sent back to the authors for revision should be returned to the editor without delay. Revised articles can be sent to the editorial office through the Online Submission Interface. The revised manuscripts returned later than three months will be considered as new submissions.

The editors of Query are responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published. The editor may be guided by the policies of the journal's editorial board and constrained by such legal requirements as shall then be in force regarding libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The editor may confer with other editors or reviewers in making this decision.
