Reviewing Process

Each paper submitted to the Administrative Issues Journal is subject to the following review procedures:

  1. It is reviewed by the Editor for general suitability for this publication.
  2. If it is judged suitable the paper is then subject to a double blind review process. At least two reviewers are matched to the paper based on expertise or interest in the subject and provide feedback and recommendations for publishing.
  3. Expertise in methodology will also be used as a matching method. For instance, the goal will be to have reviewers with expertise in qualitative methods review qualitative research. Expertise is defined by: subject, category, and methodology.
  4. If your paper has already been through the AIJ review process and was given a revise and resubmit, the new submission will  go through the entire review process as a new manuscript.

Once papers have gone through the peer review process, those receiving publish recommendations are submitted to a review from the full Editorial Board. The board reviews the papers for sound methodology and structure. Final recommendations will be then be determined based on the peer review and the Editorial Board review.

Estimated Acceptance Rate: 19%

Time for decision on submitted manuscript: Up to 4 months after submission deadline
